TIO.Tf. 



Th(» President's practical solution of 
the »p«estion of re-construction seems to 
have put an end, for the present, to the 
con«ro\erry respocting the relations 
which Ibe people of the disloyal States 
hol.l toward the Federal Goveruoient. 
Each of the principal parties to the dis- 
cussion seem to regard the Tresident's 
l»lan as based on its special theory. 

Sui.ner, who holds that by seces- 
sion the rebel States committed jdo 
de sp, and relapsed to a territorial 
condition, declares himself satis- 
fied with Mr. Lincoln's adoption of 
his view. Whiting— who afHrms that 
armed opposition to the Government of 
the United i^tates to the extent of pro- 
ducing a state of war, has converted the 
rebid people i.ito alien enenii'-s and ^ub- 
jected them to all the penalties of con- 
quest, regards it as an approval of 1 is 
theory. Uobert Dale Owen, who de- 
cl ires that the Stites arc dormant, to be 
revived as before when loyal people 
caa bo found to administer them, claims 
it a^ his invention ; and linally Seward, 
who regards the rebellion as one of per- 
sons and secession .as an illegal act and 
necessarily nr.ll and void, which cannot 
deprive the States of their rights un.ler 
the Constitution, and holds that when the 
war is over the States must be readmit- 
ted under their old Constitutions anil 
laws, is proba'ily chuckling over the final 
enil'odiineiit of his theories in the Presi- 
dents^ Aumesty Froclam.atio!i. 

The newspapers are so puzzled as to 
which of the theories have been adopted 
by the President that they generally give 
it up and say that he has "wisely avoid- 
ed committing himself to either of them," 
whi< h in one sense is true, for the fact i? 
th„> President's plan is what may be called 
••eclectij," that is to say it takes some- 
thing from all the theories propounded. 
Jiv •dving to a certain portion of the peo- 
ple of a State who shad accept the am 
uesfy the riglit to come together and form 
a new government of th'-ir own. upon 
certain conditions prescribed by the 
Federal government, he in reality as- 
sumes that tiie old State Governmeuts 
have bt enanrudled by rebellion. 

The oath exacted of the parties to this 
new government to abide by the Procla- 
mation of Emancipation treats the State 
slave constitution as a nullity, and neces- 
sarily i.dectuates free constitutions in 
their place. But again, behind this prin- 
ciple which meets the views of Sumner 
and Whiting, lies another which justifies 
the theory of Sew.ard. 

For the President's plan arises out ol 
a n exercise of the pardoning power, 
which assumes that, as Seward avowed, 
it is a rebellion of persons, and upon 
these persons, purged of their treason by 
accepting the conditions of the executive 
pardon, devolve the functions of State 
government. The State government 
revives with a class of loyal persons com- 
petent to administerit, which suits Owen 
and Seward ; and and though it revives in 
new form — with necessarily a new con- 
stitution—that, Mr. Seward might say, 
is the effect of the voluntary act of the 
popular constituency of the new or re- 
stored government by acceptmg the terms 
of ll)e pardon for crimes committed 
by them, and does not imply the nullity 
of the old constitution as a consequence 
of rebellion. 

In fact it IS possible to reconcile the 
President's plan to two opposite theories ; 
a feature which is a tolerably good proof 
that it hits the golden mean of truth be- 
tween two impracticable extremes. 

None of the plans]of reconstruction have 
been more warndy discussed than that of 
■Mr. Whiting, whose theory is based 
upon a recent decision of the Supreme 
Court, in the prize cases, that by war up- 
on the United States, the rebels have be- 
come "alien enemies'' and their territory 
"enemy's country." 

A writer in the'Boston Daily Adver- 
tiser gives a somewhat different view of 
the eff'ect of the Supreme Court decision 
in the "prize cases." lie thus sums up 
the points of that decision : 

1. The Court did not decide that the pass- 
Ini'of the Ordinance-; of Secession made the 
territory of the insurgent States enemy's ter- 
ritory, or its inliabitants alien enemies. 

2 The Court did not decide that the pass- 
ing of the Secession ordinances terminated, 
or in .nnv way impaired, the legal relations ot 
th" iusiirgent .States, as bodies politic, with 
the General Government, or the political re- 
lations of their nihat»itants with the General 
Government, or with their respective States. 

3 The Court decided absolutely nothing as 
to the etlect of the passing of the Secession or- 
dinant-es on the civil or political relations of 
the inhabitants of the insurgent .States with 
the General Government or with their respec- 
tive suites, or on the relations of the insur- 
;:ent States, as bodies poliiic, with the General 
Government. ,^ . . • . 

4. The Court did not decide that the inhabi- 
tants of the seceding States are alien enemies 
at aJl, or tliat the territory of those States is 
enemy's territory. 

What the Court did decide was :— 

1 That in case of domestic war, the Gov- 
ernment of the United Staffs may, at its op- 
tion use the powers and rights known to the 
international laws of w-tr as »)lockade, and 
capture of enemy's property at sea. 

2 That to determine whether property 
found at sea is "enemy's property," within 

the miming of the law of prize, the same 
tests may be applied in domesuc as in inter- 
national wars. , . . 
i. One of those tests is that t'le owner of the 



propertv so fonnd has his domicil and resi- 
dence in a place of which the enemy (whether 
rebel or foreign enemy) has a certain kin(l 
and degree of possession, with the exercise of 
a de facto jurisdiction. 

•i." Richmond, Virginia, was, at the time ot 
the capture and condemnation of those ves- 
iic'ls, under such possession and cqntrol of the 
cnciuv as to render it indisputably "enoiny s 
teiiitory • withiu the strictest definitions 
kui'wnto the laws of war. 

According to this statement, nothing 
was decided in the "prize cases" which 
affects the subject of secession or recon- 
struction. The debaters upon these 
matters may, therefore, throw out, alto- 
gether, the consideration of the effect of 
the Supreme Court decision. They will 
have a better chance, in consequence, to 
show their own ingenuity in fr.amii«g ar- 

<»uments and overthrowing others.

AnCHBSNHOP IIirCHES. 

The telegraph announces the death of 
Archbishop dohn Hughes. This emi- 
nent Catholic prelate was bom in the 
north of Ireland in 1798, and was there- 
fore eighty-six years old at the time o< 
his death. He was the son of a respecta- 
ble farmer of small means, who emigrated 
to America in 1817. His father placed 
him with a Uorist to learn the art of 
gardening, but Laving little taste for 
such pursuits, ho devoted his leisure to 
study, and as soon as his engagement 
expired, entered a theological semina- 
ry in Maryland, where he remained for 
several ye.irs. 

In !>>:?•"> he was ordained a priest in 
Philadelphia, and afterwards founded a 
church there, of which he became Rector. 
In 1830 he was engaged in a public theo- 
logical controversy with Rev. John 
Breckenndge, a distinguished Presbyte- 
rian Clergyman, on the subject of the 
Catholic Religion, which excited great in- 
terest at the time, and in which the re- 
markable tjilcnts which Mr. Hughes after- 
wards so often displayed in a long career 
of religious and political controversies, 
were strikingly disjdayed. In 1839 he 
became administrator of the diocese of 
Nfw York, and in 1842, on the death of 
Bishop Dubois, succeeded to the episco- 
pal dignity. 

One of his first measures was a reform 
in the tenure of church property. AU 
the eight churches in the city were heavily 
in debt and on the point of being sold. 
Bishop Hughes, amid violent opposition, 
succeeded in consolidating the church 
debts — removing them from the manage- 
ment of laymen— and securing the titles 
in his own name. 

In 1839 he visited France, Austria and 
Italy, to obtain pecuniary aid for his die" 

ccsc. 

About 1841 the famous dispute on the 
School question brought the Bishop still 
more prominently before the public. It 
was charged by the Catholics that the 
Common Schools were sectarian in char- 
acter, and they protested against being 
taxed to support schools to which they 
could not conscientiously send their chil- 
dren. Public meetin-'a were held. The 
Catholics petitioned the Common Conn- 
ed without success, and carried the mat- 
ter to the Legislature, and failed again. 
The question was for some time promi- 
nent in New York politics, and through- 
out the exciting controversy Bishop 
Hughes was the animating spirit of h.'s 
party. In 1845 he went to Europe to 
procure the services of some of the 
Jesuits — brothers of Christian Schools 
Bnd Sisters of Mercy. In 1846 be de- 
clined a special mission to Mexico, ten- 
dered by Bishop Polk. In 1850 New 
York was made an Archiepiscopal See, 
and Archbishop Hughes went to Rnme to 
receive the pallium at the hands of the 
Pope. He had a long and heated discus- 
sion in 1><54 with Erastus: Brooks about 
the Church property (question. In 1858 
he laid the corner stone ot a new Cathe- 
dral, destined to be one of the grandest 
churth edifices in America. In 1862 he 
went to Europe at the request, it is said, 
of Secretary Seward, on a semi-diplo- 
matic mission connected with the troubles 
in this country, and during the riot last 
Julv in New York he used his influence 
to dissuade his countrymen from their 
lawless proceedings. It is to be regretted 
that his vast political influence had not 
been sooner used to eradicate from the 
minds of his people the prejudices of 
which that outbreak was the natural 

fruit.

was totally unintentional, and we regret 
the omission. Rev. Mr. Williams need.s

THE OFFXClAIi CAIVVASS. 

We publish elsewhere the tabulated re- 
sults of the official canvass of the votes 
cast for State ofliccrs at the November 
election. The Bgures on Governor 
closely compare with the official table 
published by us some weeks ago — the dif- 
ference arising from the non-return to the 
Secretary of State, of the vote of Ma. 
nomin county, and from votes thrown out 
for informality in making the return. 
The disparity in the footings for the other 
State officers, arises principally from the 
latter cause. In the case of Geo. F. Po'i- 
ter. Clerk of Supreme Court, 150 votes 
from Carver county were thrown out as 
having been erroneously cast for Clerk of 
the District Court. 

Taking the figures as they stand, sub • 
ject to the above explanations, it appears 
that Charles Schefler, State Treasurer, 
received the highest vote on the Repub- 
lican ticket, while Attorney General Cole 
received the largest majority. On the 
Democratic ticket, H. T. Welles, their 
candidate for Governor, received the 
highest vote, while the lowest was cast 
forMcKinney, the Copperhead Editor 

of the Chatfield Democrat.

The Salt Lake (Utah) Nevca of the 2d

The election of a territorial delegate 
and members of the first legislature came 
ofT on the last day of October. Gov. 
Wallace is reported elected. Several 
gentlemen arrived here by last express 
from "Eastern Bannock" on Sunday 
evening, on their way to Washington, to 
effect, if possible, the division of that 
territory. The deep snows intervening 
between the mines in the east and the 
seat of government in the west is the 
chief reason assigned lor the demand of 
separation. To attend the legislature of 
Monday next the members from the east 
will have to make a detour of nearly a 
thousand miles. Mr. N. P. Langford, 
one of the members of the upper house, 
from whom we had a call on Monday, 
represents the prospects as very flatter- 
ing to the miners, e pecially at the Stink- 
water diggings. An accession of forty 
thousand miners is looked for next sum- 
mer. The reports of abundance of gold 
in the Yellow Stono country are more 

than confirmed.

On motion of Mr. DAVIS, the Secretary />f 
War was requested to f.irnish the papers rc - 
Uting to the exchange of prisoners. 

Mr. WARD'S resolution, that the Commit- 
tee on Judicial V consider the propriety of re- 
peating the joint resolution ol July 17, ISO'-', 
which prohibits a forfeiture of real estate l)e- 
yond the natural life of the otlender, was 
adopted. . ^. , 

The House bill, making appropriations for 
the Post Oilice Department for the fiscal year 
was referred to th-; Financial Committee. 

Mr. HOWE oflered a resolution, that the 
President be requested to call out militia vol- 
unteers for 90 davs,to carry freedom to everv 
captivc in the rebel prisons, and that General 
Grant be assisned to the command of said 
troops. Referred to tho Military Committee, 
and ordered printed. , 

The bill for continuing the bounties to^ vol- 
unteers was taken up, and on motion of Mr. 
FESSENDEN, was referred to committee on 
finance, with the understanding that it should 
be early reported. , , 

The message of the President and docu- 
ments on tho same subject, were referred to 
the same committee. 

Mr. WILSON moved to take up the bill en- 
rolling the national forces. The Senate pro- 
ceeded to act on the amendments of miliuiry 
committee, which were a'l adopted, sjive sec- 
tion 20, rei)ealing the ;j?300 commutation 
clause, which will be considered hereafter. 

Mr. DAVIS opposed the fourth section of 
the enrollment bill providing for furnishing 
substitutes. He denied that the Secretary of 
War had any power to remit any of the time 
of the veteran soldiers, and he (Davis) called 
it an act of injustice to the country. Veterans 
had stipulated for a term of years. 

Mr. WILSON replied that the veterans were 
mustered into the service for three years un- 
less sooner discharged. 

The Senate agreed to take up the ^J'JO

the clause. ^ c ^ i

The' House went into Committee of the 
Whole on the stitc of the Union.

On the 10th of December, octmg Ensigtj 
Edward Cressev arrived at St. Andrews Sound 
from tlic East Pass of Santa Ros a Sound with 
the stern wheel steamer Blooncr, and her 
tender and sloop Carolina, h&\\ns heard of 
the expedition to take Occola, und placed his 
command at the disposal of t ciing Master 
Browne for more extensive operations luar 
St. An rews. Accordingly thii e officers and 
40 men were sent from the Restless to the 
Blo.^mer, and she jirocccded to West Bay 
wh?re the relwl governments salt Works 
were first destroyed, which produced 40 bush- 
els daily. At this i)lace there were twenty 
seven buildings. 22 lar-c ImiLirs and some 
200 kettles averaging "200 gallons each all of 
which were destroyed together with o.OJO 
bushels of salt and some storel ouses contain- 
ing some three months provisions. The 
whole IS estimated at a half a uiilli'jn. 

From this the expedition proceeded down 
the B.iv, destroying private salt works which 
lined each side, for a distane; of 7 miles to 
the number of 19S dilfercnt establishments, 
avcra-ing 2 Loilcrs and 2 keit es to each, to- 
geiheV with large quantili'js of salt, litty 
kettles were dug up and rendered useless; 
over lo buildings were destioyed. together 
with 27 wagons and 5 large Ita -boats. 

The entire damage to the ei cmy is estima- 
ted bv acting masier Brown at §5,000,000. 

Thirty-one contrabands emi loyed at these 
works availed themselves of tlis opportunity 
t.) escape, and were of great service in point- 
in" out the places where the kettles were 
'•tored. Acting Master Bro\.ne memwhde 
ran up to within COO yards of he town of St.

ers to him as b;vn -c occupied l)y a military force

Tlie prc.'J'^nt phate of the Missouri im-

the he'ad of the l)ipartment of the Mis- 
sou-i and cr-ite u department, west and 
soiuliwcst of Missor.ri. lor Gen. Curtis. 
This is in the nature of a bargain between 
the Presidi?nt and the Senate, and cannot 
fail to operate to the disadv.antage of all 
who have a share in it. If there is good 
reason for removing Gen. Sehofield the 
President ought to remove him cheerlully 
a!id whhout condi'ions. If there is good 
reason for rejecting his nomination as 
Major General, the Senate ought to re- 
ject him siinmiarily. His rejection would 
necessitate his removal, for he could not 
longer continue lawfully to exercise com- 
mand, siftce tlie a.ijuurnment of the Sen- 
ate in .M.ii-.h last, "has been pronounced 
by the Soliciior of the A.'ar Department, 
unliwtn'. in so far a^ he has a-*sumed or 
exercised autliorlry over oJli* r Maj Gen\s. 
There is every probal-ility tiiat he will be

jtv that he will tie removed until thatend of 
bariiain is Jultilled by the part, of the 
id p:irt. Senator Browu, of Mis- 
could have seeured his reji-ction if 
he h:id in.-isted upon it : but there were 
reasons, umpiestionahly, connected wilii 
the eauo ot' etuant ipation in iVli-souri 
which impelled him lo avoid a eonlliet 
with the President, where the latt« r had 
as ili.tincily committed himself What- 
ever '-ood has been done in the premises 
is diuT solely to the firmness of Senator 
Brown ar-d his colleagues of the Missouri 
detiatjon in Coiigres-^ ; and all state- 
which attrfbute the result to the

THE CASK OF .SENATOU ilAI.K. 

The testimony before the Judiciary 
Committee of the Senate relative to Mr. 
Hale, \i> of the following tenor: Nathan- 
iel McKay, of East Boston, Mass., made 
atKdavIt some time since that lie paid to 
o.ie John Trickev, (appropriate name,) 
for Mr. Hale, the sum of .f80<). being tli.- 
first instalment of .•<■-*,<)(») to be paiil in 
consideration of the latter's getting 
James ISI. Hunt out of the old Capitol 
Prison, and th.at he took Mr. Halo's re- 
ceijit for tin? money, and subsequently 
handed it to Hunt, who refunded to him 
(.McKay) the >!Sii..i. The affidavit states 
lailiier in substance, that Hale was paid 
$l,Of)0 additional for services in getting 
Hunt's parole changed, but that, a.s tiie 
parole was r.ot changed in the manner 
that Hunt desired, botii he and Hunt eon 
sidered that Hale Lad charged an ex 
orbilant sum for very small services. 
This alfid.avit was taken by a commission 
eng v '' iu preparing evidence for aconrt 
martial cf .veued !)>• ijn^u. P;i?l ■''. to try 
Hunt on » hai -«..-> oi iraua in t!.c v-^uarter- 
master's 7>epartment at Fortre.-s Mon- 
roe, a?id upon the cal of tlie Judiciary 
Committee a copy of the af'l<I.) yit was fur- 
nished them as a starting puiiu for the 
more thoroi"Th invosiic^:iti(.ii which they 
arc directeif to make. Some collateral 
cviilence is before tlie (Jommittef'v- in tlie 
shape of private leifers from Hunt to 
McKay, in which Hale is denounced as 
no better than a swindler, for his short- 
comings in the matter of the parole after 
he had received the pay. A letter frcm 
Hale to the Secretary of war, urging that 
the parole be changed in accordance with 
Hunt's wishes (to wit, that he might go 
to Fortress Monroe *'to take care of his 
property",) is also shown, together with 
the Secretary's answer, refusing to com- 
ply with the request. 

Mr. McKay appeared at the Judiciary 
Counnittee room on Wednesday, in obe- 
dience to a summons, to give his testirao- 
nv in per:-on, but the committee evidently 
considered the case of too solemn a na- 
ture to proceed without giving the 
accused an opportunity to confront the 
witnesses. He was accordingly directed 
to reappear three weeks hence, when Mr. 
Hale >ljall have returned. 

THE .S300 KXEMTTIOX CL.VUSE. 

The Copperheads arc in great trepida- 
tion lest the $;)<X> clause of the enroll- 
ment act, which they denounced so round- 
lo last summer, be repealed. Their dis- 
tress is shown whenever the subjest is 
brought up in either House. Reason 
enough — the repeal of the act would 
make their side take a hand in the war. 
Tbey now go for tremendous bounties to 
encourage volunteering, or a total aboli- 
tion of the enroMment act as an infringe- 
ninit on State Uig.its. Mr. Ancona, of 



Corre?pondonca of the London Times. 

Richmond, Saturday, Nov. M, 1«63. 
—The Confederate btates are rapidly 
approaching a stage in this war which 
will test more than ever the stiibborness 
and tenacity of their temper and patience 
and can only be suceessfully encountered 
by a national spirit as systematic as it is 
resolute. Their enemy, with as much 
pertina<!ty and far more s.igacity than 
heretofbre hems in the edges of the "re- 
bellion'* on every side, avoids the fre- 
quent recurrence 'of pitched battles and 
{rencral engagements, pounces with 
hawk-like swoop upon isolated and m- 
adt.iuatclv supported bodies of men, 
evinces possession of admira!>le secret in- 
formation, keeps the Confederate Gener- 
als constantly on the rack, and harassed 
bv irruptions of cavalry, makes his sii- 
perioriu' of numbers, ami still more hH 
abundance of supplies for horse and man, 
uiore and more felt, and finally u mves t- 
iuf the ports of Secessia with a cordon of 
vessels so numerous as for the first time 
in :^0 mon^hs to make access to the Con- 
federate coast reallv dangerous and dii- 
ficult. On the other hand, in rebeldom 
itself the Pc'lerals have a powerful 
ally in circumstances which, to my 
thinking, have from the beginning quad- 
rupled "the magnitude of the Confeder- 
ate task. Xo one who has be^n conver- 
sant with the Northern States during the 
last 2 1-- vears can have failed to notice 
with a.stonisbment the faith, stronger than 
death, which the Northerners have exhib- 
ited in their "star," their "Manifest de.s- 



be' prompt and drastic enough in its oper- 
ation to sweep away at once the vast re- 
dundancy of the currency, to inspire con- 
fidence in a distrustful people, and bring 
supplies pronq)tly into market. If it fails 
there is no alternative lelt for the (xov- 
emmene but to seize and impress wh t- 
ever it wants with a high hand, and to 
this step it will be Impelled, rather than 
yield to the hated Yankee, by the almost 
unanimous voice of the Confederate peo- 
ple. It was long ago remarked by Mi- 



chiavelli that no people once embarked in 
war is ever forced into peace by reason 
of pecuniary inanition, and never were 
the nations less amenable to consiuera- 
tions of cash than the two sections of a 
Bimdered republic, which three years ago 
exhibited an average of individual wealth 
anion fr its citizens such as could be found 
nowhere else upon earth. The enibar-

plies which abound in 

eUewiiere up to the mouths which nee 



ting,'' their ♦'religion," their Alpha and 
Oinega. their dream of dominion from sea 
to sea, and (to tpiote Mr. Everett's 
words) "f o;u the icy Pole to the flaming 
belt of the Kquator.'" Xo parallel faith 
has ever been exhibited by the Confeder- 
ate States in their luture. Six great 
Southern victories in the field and three 
drawn b.attles, exhausting the nine prln- 
eipal collisions ot the war, the entire ab- 
sence of any such panic routs as Bull 
Uun or (.'hickamanga, the tried InefTicien- 
ov of the Federal blockade, the unmolest- 
ed predatory flight of Alabamasand Flor- 
idasatsea, have altogether failed to in- 
si)ire t!ie masses of the South with a tithe 
of that eontidenec in themselves which 
neither defeat, nor disaster, nor hope de- 
ferred, nor illusions dispelled, have ever 
shaken out of the Northerners. Deny it 
who may, there is something sublime in 
the earnestness and misty magnificence of 
Northern faith and self-reliance. Would 
that I couhl see promise of future and fi- 
nal Southern triumph in any coiTespoud- i 
ini> (luabtv of the Southern mind! In i 
many fashions Southern unlaith crops i\\> 
and recoils upon the Confederate Gov- 
ernment, making, for instance, Mr. Mem- 
minger's task, though he takes hi.s_stands 
upon raw material, worth 00 or 70 mil- 
lions of pounds sterling, Herculean 
as compared with that of Secretary 
Chase, who issues vastly larger promi.^e.-; 
to pay on a security of breailsuff ex- 
ports worth GO or 70 millions of dollars. 
There are, of course, other reasons to 
account lor the fact, that three dollars in 
•♦greenbacks" will buy two dollars in 
gold, wliile it requies thirty paper dollars 
of the Confederacy to buy a like sum ; 
but the fundamental explanation cf the 
discrepancy in value of the irredeemable 
paper issues of the two sections lies in 
the vastiv superior faith in themselves of 
the Northern people. For many months 
we have heard throughout the Confeder- 
acy the cuckoo cry, "Do something to 
arrest the depreciation of the currency or 
we perish;" but hitherto nothing has been 
done, and as is now seen by everybody, 
we are now on the brink of a precipice. 
It is universally admitted that the coun- 
try is richer in everything that constitutes 
wealth than it was twelve months ago ; 
that there is a sufficiency of meat and 
far greater abundancce of cereals than 
last year ; that fruit and vegetables have 
been granted us m unusual abundance : 
that Kiclunond has supplies of coal and 
wood vastly in excess of those laid in 
against last' winter — in proof of which I 
may mention that the streets are now as 
well lighted as those of London, whereas, 
last year, their Crimmerian darkness was 
was a favorite theme of the New York 
Herald; but, in spite of these facts, un- 
laith in Confederate currency grows 
apace ; the fiirmers refuse to part with 
their crops on any terms ; flour fetches 
8100 a barrel, and is rising; bacon is 



them, and in introducing through an in- 
creasingly striiiL'ent Vdockade all that ij 
vital for their coiUinued strugijle, may 
be, and probably will be, grievous and 
perplexing ; that they will be such as to 
extiugui.^h or paralvze future resistance 
will not be lightly credited by one who 
knows what dilliculties have been sur- 
mounted, what shortcomings supplement- 
ed, whit energy and ingenuity displayed. 
The reported capture of the two prin- 
cipal Government vessels which have 
.since January last been engaged in run- 
nine the blockade, and which have ma<lc 
n^aHv fiftv round vovages betwcer. them, 
wiil doubtless be held up to England by 
Mr. Seward as a great instance of Yan- 
kee vigor ; and yet it reciuires large char- 
ity to regard as ellective such a blockade 
as has been for eleven months ])ierced at 
will by the Corjiubia and Oirafe, or, as 
jshc has recently been called, the liolert 
E. Lee. Doubtless fresh Government 
vessels will soon be obeying the behests 
of the Ordnance Bureau, and in the 
meantime sueh is the glut of blockading 
(roods introduced into the Confederacy 
by the vessels belonging to private coin 



the

paniea, that 1 understand there are at tins 
moment 1.') cargoes ware! oused at \\ il- 
uunf-ton, .awaiting a rise in prices before 
thev are v.fTered for sale. Never since 
the' establishment of American indepen- 
dence i ave there been such supplies of 
brandies and wines in Richmond, Au- 
gusta, and many other cities as at this 
monu nt. The" blockade-running seems 
about to be intermitted, not so much by 
reason of the increased energy of the 
blockading squadrons as of the fact that 
tlie Southern market is glutted by **^" 
goods already introduced. ''\ * 

1 cannot conceal niM own impression 
that verv little energy' has l>een idiown by 
the Co'nfederate Government in their 
operations against Knoxvllle and East- 
ern Tennessee. Successes have been 
gained at Loudon bv the Confederates, 
and it woubl seem that nothing more was 
required to drive Burnside out of Knox 
ville than a hearty and harmobious co- 
operation between Gen. Stevenson, who 
■ at Loudon, and Gen. Sam. Jones, who 
Western Virginia. \^y\\ no ener- 
enterprise, has in this quarter 
been exhibited, although! am assured by 
ofliiers attached to Jones' command that 
in their opinion, 10.000 Confederates 
could sweep East Tennessee clear of 
Federals. I fear that the harmony of ac- 
tion between the armies of Gens. Lee and 
Bragg, which has been represented in 
England as existing, is as imaginary as 
the'transfer lo and fro from Virginia to 
Tennessee and back from Tennessee to 
Virginia, of Gen. Longstreet and his 
corps. They who have witnessed the 
slowness and difficulty which accompany 
the movements of army corps, who are 
cognizant of the weeks and weeks which 
sn^h an upheaval exacts, will understand 
the impossibility of any such stratugy as 
the Confederates have been credileil with. 
Great as has been the acumen exhibited 
by the English Press throughout this war 
in sifting northern versions of the news — 
an acumen which has often been com- 
mended in inv hearing since I came to 
the South— you have yet to learn that in 
reference to'lhe number of the Confeder- 
ate troops engaged, and to the Confeder- 
ate Generals in command, there is often 
in Northern accounts of battles not one 

"rain or vestige of truth.

c!o^■e upon ?«;; a pound ; everything js 
proportionately dear, and nothing plenti- 
ful save Confederate currency, until, at 
last, a woman going to market has heen 
heard to exclaim : "I cany a basket to 
to market hold my money, and I carry a 
pocket-book to letch home the slice of 
beef which it buys." 

In this emergency all eyes turn lo the 
Confederate Congress, which meets upon 
the 7th of December, and never was 
graver qnestion submitted to a deliberate 
assembly than that which awaits its imme- 
diate discussion. Some eight hundred or 
nine hundred million dollars are afloat in 
a community which could with difliculty 
sustain a circulation of two hundred mil- 
lions, and, worse than all, Mr. Mem- 
rainger's paper mill is harder at work 
than ever, until the dollar, which now 
rejiresents a value of fourpence English, 
promises shortly to be worth only four 
farthings. The redundant currency has 
somehow to be founded, fresh issues to 
be suspended, a limited amount of circu- 
lating medium to be put forth, and a sol- 
emn pledge given that this amount shall 
not hereafter be exceeded. I am bound 
to record that the people are in a temper 
to stand extravagant taxation. For many 
weeks past the Confederate Cabinet has 
been eagerly engaged in discussing and 
excogitating a scheme for relief, and a 
financial convention of the Presidents of 
Southern banks is to assemble at Augusta 
on tlie 16th inst. I h.ave reason to think 



An Aral) Troup* In rarl*. 

The great attraction of the day, in 
Pjiris, is to be found in the Cirque Napo- 
leon, where every one goes to see the 
Arab troupe. It consi.st.s of twenty-six 
clowns, of bronze and swarthy hue, who 
go through a variety of postures, of c\- 
eivisfcs and and maua-uvreib, which im- 
press one with the idea that their limbs 
are formed of caoutchouc. The leaps 
they take, the bounds they n'.akc, the 
wild and daring gestures of these ex- 
traordinary denizens ol the desert, have 
something almost preternatural in them. 
Their savage yells, their piercing screams, 
joined with their lire of musketry, are 
almost too powerful for the possessor of 
a modern nervous system. There are 
two of herculean form, a negro and an 
African, who perform together feats of 
strength, who grasp each other and in- 
tertwine their muscular limbs in so m.any 
shapes, as to make one doubt that they 
v.ere not created together. Then the 
whole party form pyramids of immense 
heijht. making one almost giddy to 
look upon then ; they then place them- 
selves in various attitudes apparent- 
ly bound together, reminding one of 
the idols of India, where a hun»ired heads 
and arms appear in one mighty ma.ss. 
After their marvelous exhil ition, .a dwarf 
goes through, with wonderful agility, a 
variety of efpiestrian performances, fitted 
to be immortalized by Hon Gaultier in his 
del ghtful Spani.sh ballads, from Astley's. 
The^dwarf is a hideous fellow ; he has no 
resemblance to the well-shaped form of 
the irascible Sir Jeflrey Hudson, to that 
of the polished Count Ponitowska, nor the 
happily married (ieneral Tom Thumb. 
His head is large, his nose is crushed, his 
legs are short and deformed, whilst his 
body is that of a large man ; he is some- 
what of the gnome, and is of the breed 
that Paul Veronese delighted to paint as 
devouring food under the table of the

Thk Tki-kcuumi to St. Ci.orD.— 
The iflcgr.iph line up the Mississippi river 
cinnot l)e constructed this winter, i;s the 
ground is found to be frozen too hard to work 
to^uiucli advantage. .\s soon as spring opens, 
ihe work of setting the poles, which are bcini: 
got out now, will coinnicnoc. The line wiU 
be eomplettd to .Vnoka about May 1. The 
balance of the Hue to St. Cloud is under eon- 
tract to 1)C completed by June loth, and will 
thereafter l)e .-teadiiy constructed tu Fort Ah- 
ercrombie and renibina. Four thousand poles 
are beinpj cut and delivered now. 

From I.a Crosse to Milwaukee a new line is 
to 'c built aud linished by July lo, with new 
poles and two wires throughout. 

Tho constniciion of these lines will give our 
merchants .iddiiional business facilities. One 
line more needed than any other, howevei^- 
th:it up the Minnesota Valley— does not seem 
to be progressing very fast. It should be 
built ut an early day. The enterprising com- 
munities up the Minnesota e.mno: do without 
a line muth luuger.

Saint Paul Athletic Club. — At a 
meeting held last evening at the "Club 
Uooms, " the tollowing Gentlemen were 
chosen as oliicers for the ensuing six months : 

P,esi(len{—R. C. Munger. 

Vice President— 3. M. N. Hawthorne. 

.sVc/v^j/y— Channing Seaburj-. 

2>f(Ji«rt r— Geo. L. Farwell. 

"W'e are pleased to note the gr.itifying indi- 
cations of earnestness .and zeal which is being 
evinced in this new enterprise, the improving 
aad l>eneficial clfects of which will, ere long, 
we 02nne. be patent in the rejuveniited Phys- 
ique oi our yonng men, and others who avail 
themselves of the opportunities it proffers 
t:.em. It is also arranged to h.ive "Class 
Meetings" on Tuesday and Friday evenings of 
ea'.h week um'er the direction and drill of ac- 
complished gyiunJisi s. This feature of the en- 
iv.ri)rizo must contribute largely to its interest 
.and success, while the well known careful and 
silting discrimination which protects its Mem- 
bership from t'«| introduction oi "doubtful an- 
te:edents" .ilVords a s.itisfactory guaranty that 
iu physical advantages and sociil amenities 
will be well appreciated and fostered .as among 
the established and permanent Institutions of 

our city.

MR. COBDEN AND THE LON- 
DOIT TIMES. 



Interesting Correspondence 



THE EDITOR OF THE "THUNDERER' 
SMOKED OUT I 



The foreign news brings an interesting 
account of a controversy between Mr. 
Cobden and the London Times. The 
origin of the controversy was some com- 
ments made by the I'im's upon a speech 
of Mr. Bright's, made at Rochdale. Mr. 
Cobden made a speech at the same time 
and in behalf of his friend Mr. Bright, 



as.sailed; while, at the same time, it has 
awakened the attention of a languid publie, 
I and attracted thesyinp.ithy of fair and manly 
minds. It is thus'that such public measures 
' as the abolition of the corn laws, the repeal 
of the taxes on knowledjfc, and the ncgoti.i- 
i tion of the treaty of eo:iuneire with I'r.incc 
I triumphed in spite of its virulent, pertinacious 
'and unscrupulous opposition; until at last I 
am tending to the convietion that there are 
I three conditions only requisite f<ir the success 
I of any great pnyect of reform — namely, a 
• good causc,persevcring advocates, and the hos- 
tility of the Times. 
I am. Sir, your obedient servant,

personal pos 
pi-oeeeds to make libtdlous attacks upon 
individuals, lor which, were it not for his 
being an impersonal myth he would be 
held personally responsible. Mr. Cob- 
den concludes his letter by saving : 

That it will be for public men to decide 
whether they will in future summon the rc- 
si)ijnsil)le editor, manager, or proprietor to the 
bar of public opinion, and hold him up by 
name to the oblotiuy which awaits the tradu- 
cerniul calumniator in every other walk of 
social and political life. 

The Times announced the receipt of 
thn letter, and stated .hat it would ap- 
pear the ne.xt morning. A more careful 
|iciusal, however, changed their plans, 
and instead of publishing it a note was 
sent to Mr. Cobden, signed, "The Ed- 
itor," declinnig to publish the letter, and 
giving as one of the reasons that previous 
articles commenting upon the Rochdale 
speeches m much the same terms, had 
bjen passed by many unnoticed. 

Mr. Cobden then forwarded his letter 
to the Daily Nctcs together with the re- 
ply of "The Editor" and the day follow- 
ing wrote another note to the Times, 
from which we make the following ex- 
tracts : 

To John T. Delane, Esq. : Sin: You and 
I have been long personally acquainted ; your 
hand writing is well known to me,and I know 
you to be the chief editor of the Times. Un- 
der such circumsMnces I cannot allow you to 
su^lpress your individuality, and shield your- 
self under the third person of the editorial 
nomnative, in a correspondence allecting 
your personal responsibility lor a scandalous 
aspersion on myself (as I now learn from 
you) as well as on Mr. Bright. 

"Your refusal to publish my former letter 
is a matter so entirely within your own prov- 
ince that I have nothing to say upon it, except 
to congratulate myself on the recent revolu- 
tion in the new.^paper world which renders 
your detisi'jn comparatively harinless. A few 
years ago the Times possessed almost a mo- 
nopoly of publicity. Four-fifths of the daily 
newspaper circulation issued from its press. 
Sow it eonstitutos, probably, cue-tenth of our 
daily journalis.ni, aud my letter will be only 
the more generally read from having been 
excluded from your columns. 

Your letter proceeds to offer some most 
singular arguments in justification of your at- 
tack on Mr. Bright. You stite that your 
journal had previously conti^ined two leading 
articles easting the same imputation on both 
hiin and myself, that you had challenged us 
to disavow yourinterpretiition of our speeches, 
and as we had failed to do so you accepted 
our bilence as an acknowledgement of the 
truth of your interprctiition ; in other words, 
as proof of our guilt i Here we have, in a com- 
pendious form, an exhibition of jthose quali- 
ties of mind which characterize the editorial 
management of the Times — of that arrogant 
self-coinj)latency, that logical incoherence, 
and that moral bewilderment which a too long 
career of impunity and irresponsibility could 
alone engender. I will not stop to remark on 
your demolition of your own pretense for re- 
jecting my championship of Mr. Bright by 
the admission that you had included us both 
in a joint indictment. 

Now, that which forms the basis of yonr 
reasoning, if such it may be termed, is dn in- 
ordinate display of what I will Ciill ^imes 
egotism. Notwithstanding that your journal 
has now but a fractional part ot the daily, 
newspaper circulation, you complacently as- 
sume that all the world are your constant 
readers. The Times never enters my house, 
except by rare accident. This I know to be 
also the case with Mr. Bright, who will, in all 
prohability, never have seen your attack until 
he reads it in my letter. It is on.y during the 
Session, at the Club, that I am inthe habit of 
seeing your paper. The chance visit of a 
friend last Friday placed in my hand the 
Times of the previous day, when that scandal- 
ous paragraph caught my eye which formed 
the text of my letter to you. I was fntirely 
ignorant of the two former attacks, which by 
a droll process of reasoning you now ask me 
to accept as a justificetion of the thrd. 

The letter then proceeds to deny at 
some length the charge previously made 
and concludes as follows : 



preferred a single copy of the Times to "all 
the wi rks of Thucydi les," did not admit the 
Times into your house ? 

You say {hat you seldom read the Times, 
anil i: is probably because you take your opin- 
ions of it at .second-hand from its rivals ilut 
you applv to it such terms as "arrogant" and 
"truculent," and <mly hesitate over "rttffian- 
Iv." I appeal from your professed ignorance 
to the better informed judgment of that lar^f 
m.ajority who do read the Times, and who 
have discovered in it no such qualilies. 

He proceeds to argue that the Times'' 
interpretation of the speech was the nat- 
ural one and winds up with the following 
paragraph in defense of the "iinpersonal" 
system : 

"The possession, the transfer, and the ten- 
ure of land are, however, public questions, 
which are best discussed, not between Mr. 
Cobden and Mr. Delane, but as it has always 
been the practice of the English press to dis- 
cuss them — anonymously. That practice was 
not invented bv mc; it will not be ilestroyed 
by yourself. It has approved itseif to the 
judgment of all, whether statesmen or pub- 
licists, who have appreciated the freedom and 
independence of the press, and I believe it to 
be essential to the interests not only of the 
press, but of the public. 

I am. Sir, your obedient servant, 

JOHN T. DELANE.

Anecdotes of Presfdrnt liincoln. 

An English correspondent of a London 
magazine is giving some lively sketches of 
Anerican life, and among other things 
relates the following anecdote of Presi- 
dent Lincoln's con vers .ational manner, as 
he saw the President recently in a small 
party in Washington : 

The conversation, like that of all 
American oiKcial men I have met with, 
was unrestrained in the presence ol 
strangers, to a degree perfectly aston- 
ishing. Any remarks that I heard made 
as to the present state of afTiirs, I do not 
feel at liberty to repeat, though really 
every public man here appears not only 
to live in a glass house, but in a rever- 
berating gallery, and to be absolutely in- 
different as to who sees or hears him. 
There are a few ' Lincolnania,' however, 
which I may fairly (juoto, and which will 
show the style of bis conversation. Some 
of the party began smoking, and our host 
remarked, laughingly, * The President 
has got no vices ; he neither smokes nor 
drinks.' 

"That is a doubtful compliment," an- 
swered the President ; "I recollect once 
being jutside a stage in Illinois, and a 
man sitting by me offered me a cigar. I 
told him I had no vices." He said noth 
ing, smoked for some time, and then 
grunted out, "It's my experience that 
folks who have no vices have plagued few 
virtues." Again, a gentleman present 
was telling how a friend of his had been 
driven away from New Orleans as a 
Unionist, and how, on his e.xpulsion, 
when he asked to see the writ by which 
he wag expelled, the deputation which 
called on him told him that the Govern- 
ment had made up their minds to do noth- 
ing illegtil, and so they had issued no il- 
legal writs, and simply meant to make 
him go of his own free wi'l. "Well," 
said Mr. Lincoln, "that reminds me of a 
hotel keeper down at St. Louis, who 
boasted that he never had a death in his 
hotel, for whenever a guest was dying in 
his house he carried him out to die in the 
street." At another time the conversa 
tion turned upon the discussions as to the 
Missouri Compromise, and elicited the 
following quaint remark from the Presi- 
dent : "It used to amuse me some to 
find that the slaveholders wanted more 
territory, because they had not room 
enough for their slaves, and yet they com- 
plained of not having the slave trade, b«- 
cause they wanted more slaves for their 
room."

Ul^^IOP XVHI1'P«>E O^ THE IST- 
X>ftA.'% .•tV.'iTETl. 

We publish to-aay on oiir second page 
an " encyclical" letter ol IJisbop Whip- 
ple lo his llo -k, one of his periodiciil 
^■pi^tles to the hard-hearted and heathen- 
ish G;uatians ol this part of the world, 
on tl:b subject ol Indian wrongs. 

Tiiore is nothisig more adiuirable than 
the Christian benevolence which inspires 
this appeal on behalf ot our Indian neigh- 
bors, as there is nothing more desirable 
' than the objects sought to be attained by 

It. Yet it is impossible to read this tlo- 
t (juent address without being convinced 

that the gjod liishop is largely the dupe 
ufhisowa feelings; for there is really 
nothing in the world so credulous as 
philautlropy or so easily imposed upon 
as kindness of heart. The strong sympa- 
thies of the generous easily degenerate 
into prejudices; the ardent champion 
sinks readily into the reckless partizan ; 
'and the romantic knight that goes forth 
witb sword and spear to rescue di^tresseu 
damsils from the grasp of giants, i^ 
>— found in the very madness of deselsec 
generosity, wreaking his wayward veng- 
eance on a Hock of innocent sheep. 

We are afraid that the reverend Bishop 
is prevented by his partiality for the un- 
fortunate beings who are the spedal ob- 
jects of his sympathy— from doing justice 
y to the scarcely less unfortunate beings 

who are the special objects of his denun- 
- ciations. lu the excess of his love for 
the Indian he forgets the charity which is 
due the white man, and the deluge of 
coinpassicui on one side drains off the 
^ equal flow of Christian kindness on the 

other. The good Bishop sees the rela- 
tions of the red and white man through a 
lens which on one »id.e exaggerates to 
romincc the virtues and suffering of the 
savage race, and on the other distorts to 
(^ caricature the features of his assumed 
oppressors. The ruthless assassins of 
our bonier sellers are to him themariyrs 
and the avengers of a system of cruel 
wronjis and outrages ; though lie deems 
the wcrk of vengeance so ill performed 
as to rerpiire a littlo supplementary 
slaugbstr on his own account. 

And the M'dewakanton followers of 
Little Crow hardly assailed the Indian 
tralers and cflicials in their power, with 
more indiscriminate ruthlessnesa with 
tlietowahawk, than this good bishop of the 
diocese of Minnesota, with his pen. Age, 
sex, personal reputation, public position, 
everv title to respect or consideration 
which these poor devils hold dear, is 
swi pt away, without stint or hesitation, 
in this wholesale massacreof good names. 
The good Bishop would probably find 
it difileult to support his sweeping aspei- 
sims of the character of the men who hap- 
pen to be connected with the Indian sys- 
tem in this State by specific charges 
against individuals. InJeed \ic are sure 
that he would be thefirst to exonerate, m 
d-jtail, the men, whom he unhesitatingly 
charges in the mass with crimes that 
should brand their perpetrators with in- 
famy. 

These loose generalities of invective 
-which propagate a vulgar slander at the 
expense of truth and personal justice can 
hardly help the cause of philanthropic or 
aay other reform. 

Each of the men who have been select- 
ed to fill responsible posts in connection 
with Indian affairs in this State has a 
reputation as dear to him as the kind 
hearted Clergyman who assails him by the 
necessarv — but doubtless unintentional — 
implication of his language; and what- 
X ever their predecessors m.\v have been, 
the Indian officials in this State are, we 
are sure, as far above the imputation 
which the Bishop has thoughtlessly cast 
upon their class, as is the Bishop himSCll 
above the wish to make them the object 
of an undeserved opprobium. 

And when so good a man as the Bishop 
allows himself by inadvartence to inflict 
so gross a wrong in the pursuit of a good 
object, the reflection forcea itself upon us, 
whether the asserted wrongs inflicted by 
the Indian fvstem are not also partly a 
neccssaiy result of those inherent imper- 
fections of Luman nature which are never 
wanting even in the wisest and best. Is 
there no dishonesty in this world except 
in the Indian trade? Are there no fraud- 
ulent contracts except when Indians are 
the suUerers ? Does not the apothecary 
"pestle his poisoned person" outside the 
Reservation, and tlie baker fet^jl other 
poor than they with "alum and plaster?" 
In this wretched ago of shoddy and ras- 
cality and blander, shall we go to the 
" frontier for scapegoats to bear the bur- 

den of all the sins of civilization? 
t The Bishop, we fear, is th« victim of 

an illusion common to the sanguine be- 
•■ nevolence of inexperience if he expects to 

build up a special Utopia for the ludian 
in the miJst of this wicked world, espe- 
I cially on the borders of Minneseta ; or re- 

j store the lied man to the blissful Eden 

^ from which the white man was long ago 

1 expelled for his sins, especially with the 

4 yr hi te man for the guardian angel of his 

Paradise restored. 



I10E,DI3iO O.'V. 

"While our late Judge of Probate was 
acandi'late for re-election, last fall, he 
was wont to iu lulge in the threat, that if 
his oppon?nt was elected he would not 
surrender the books and records of the 
oflice but would continue to act as Judge 
in defiance of the voice of the people. 

The ground upon which he planted 
himself was that instead of being elected 
t ) fill a vacaiicy, he was chosen to fill a 
terra of two years. Judge lloyt, it will 
be remembered was elected in 1861 Pro- 
bate Judge of Ramsey County. A short 
tira • after entering upon the duties of his 
ofTice he resigned and Judge Crowt-ll was 
appointed to fiill the vacancy until the 
next general election. At this election 
Judge Lambert w s chosen for the re- 
m.aming year of Judge Iloyt's unexpired 
term, which closed on the first of this 

month. 

By becoming a candidate last Novem- 
ber, for re-election Lambert virtually ad- 
mitted that his term of office was about 
to expire, but seeing that defeat was cer- 
tain, he concluded to retain by foul what 
he could not hope to possess by fair 
mean^. 

Judge Crowell was duly elected and 
has filed his bond, taken the oath of office, 
and is the legally (lualified Probate Judge 
of Ramse;,- county. Upon going to Lam- 
bert a few days ago for the public docu- 
ments connected with the oflice, he posi- 
tlvelv refused to surrender them, assert- 
ing that he was elected for the full term, 
instead of for Judge] Iloyts unexpired 
term. The law on this subject is plain 
beyond dispute, stating that officers 
elected to fill vacancies, "may hold the 
same during the unexpired term for which 
they were elected, and until their succes- 
sors are elected and qualified." 

We understand that Judge Crowell 
will t:ike steps immediately to oust the 
petty usurper who clung to his illegal po- 
sition in the School Board until he was 
kicked out by a unanimous vote of the le- 
gal members, and now seems anxious for 
a second application before vacating the 
Probate office. Tt should be borne in 
uiind that any Probate business transact- 
ed with Lambert will be null and void, as 
Jud<TC Crowell is the authorized of- 
ficer.

■«♦»■♦■ 



TwKNTY-ONE volunteers came up from 
La Crescent, Houston county, a day or 
two since, and were mustered into tbe 
service of our venerable Uncle Samuel. 
This is doing nobly, and if every town 
in the State would do as well, we should 
hear nothing more about a draft in Min- 
nesota, under the present call at least. 

In the entire enrollment of La Cres- 
cent there are but one hundred and eight 
names, and this includes both classes, as 
well as the blind, the halt and the lame. 
The town raised by private subscription 
one hnndred dollars bounty for each re-* 
cruit, and then went to work and secured 
the recruits for the bonnty. W. H. 
Lapham and C. J. Hayes are entitled 
to a large proportion of the credit for 
this patriotic movement. They said, 
"come boys," instead of '"go," and thus 
placed themselves in a position where 
they could work effectually. George F. 
Totter, Clerk tlect of the Supreme Court, 
made the liberal subscription of one hun- 
dred dollars to the private bounty fund, 
and secured his man. 

This is the way to go to work to secure 
volunteers. The draft is liable to be or- 
dered any day and the only way to escape 
it is by volunteering. The bill intro- 
duced into Congress immediately upon 
its re-assembling on the 5th, providing for 
the payment of large bounties until 
M;irch, will undoubtedly pass, and by 
adding to this the stimulus of private 
bounties, men can be procured. In other 
words follow the example of La Crescent, 
which is the best, (because the bounty is 
the highest) that has been set by any 

town in the State.

Lord Clarence Paget, Secretary of 
the English Admiralty, made a speech at 
a public dinner in wliich he apologised 
for tlie bombardment and destruction of 
Kagosema, Japan, by declaring that the 
English Admiral couldn't help it, that he 
only wanted to fire into the Diamio's 
fleet, but that the sea rolled so that the 
cannon balls and shells flew over the 
ships and struck the town. Considering 
that this accidental bombardment lasted 
several hours and reduced the town to 
ashes, we don't believe this will go down. 
Earl Russelis said to have given the or- 
der for hostile operations against Japan 
without the assent of bis colleagues, and 
will probably get a sharp rap on the 
keuckles by Palmerston. Palraerston 
meanwhile has interfered and sent Sir 
Rutherford Alcock, who has been British 
Resident in Japan for over three years, 
speaks the language and understands 
the customs of the people, as Ambas- 
sador to that country with the view of 
existing rdi<riculties between 



adjnstinc 

the two nations.

Mr. Disraeli, tbe well-known Eng- 
lish author and statesman, has been the 
recipient of a legacy of forty thousand 
pounds ($200,000), from an okl Jewish 
lady, Mrs. Wellyamr by name, who was 
very proud of the celebrity of Disraeli, 
whose grandfather was of the Jewish per- 
suasion. Ilcr acquaintance with him 
arose from her inquiring whether he was 
descended from a Spanish family, as she 
claimed to be. His reply led to a re- 
joinder, and, though the correspondents 
never met, the intimacy by letter was 
continued until the old lady, who had 



From th^ Daily Wisconsin. 

A/e have received from a gentleman 
interested in the railroad affairs of Min- 
nesota, a few notes of the progress of the 
railroad svstem that ia being developed 
in that State, which will be of interest to 
our readers. The future growth of Mil- 
waukee, depends to a great extent upon 
the development and prosperity of Min- 
nesota, and it we are wise, and awake to 
our true interests, we will seize upon 
eveiy opportunity to inform ourselve* ol 
the resources and promise of our neigh 
boring State, and to turn the fruits of 
her vast fields of wealth in this direction 
Before the present cold spell of weath- 
er, work upon the Winona and St. Peter 
Railroad was in full operation. This road 
takes a slightly northwestern direction 
from Winona, and it is projected to ter- 
minate it at St. Peter, a town of con^d- 
erable size on the Minnesota River, near- 
ly 200 miles from Winona. It is already 1 
built about twenty-seven out from \V'\- 
nona, and as soon as they get to Saint 
Charles, which is thirty miles from Wi- 
nona, they purpose running passenger 
and freight trains from Winona to St 
Charles and back. In the meantime the 
road will be continued westward as fast 
as possible. A very large force of hands 
has been kept constantly engaged upon 
it, and tacy continved to employ as many 
as can be worked to advantage. 

There is some talk now of constructing 
a branch Irom Rochester, on the Winona 
& St. Peter Road to St. Paul, and sur- 
veys will probably be commenced forth- 
with, for this purpose. The distance 
from Winona to Rochester is fifty miles, 
and if this branch were constructed, it 
would make the shortest railroad route to 
St. Paul, by a considerable distance. 

The Cedar Valley railroad, which is 
now in process of construction from St. 
Paul southward, down through Minneso- 
ta and Iowa, crosses the Winona and St. 
Peter railroad at Owatonna, which is 
eighiy miles west of Winona. 

Both of these roads will be pushed 
to a speedy completion, and they both 
penetrate the garden of Minnesota, a 
State which is fruitful beyond description. 
A luxuriant soil and a healthful climate, 
a'lve to Minnesota superior advantages 
over almost every other State in the 
Northwest. 

The country through which the W. & 
St. P. R. R. is being constructed, is 
mostly rich, rolling prairie, and its re- 
sources are literally inexhaustible. A 
good evidence of its fertility and pros- 
perity is afforded in the fact that already 
the daily receipts of wheat at Winona 
are from' 10,000 to 15.000 bushels . This 
road, therefore, as well as the Cedar Val- 
ey Road, comprises a huge horn of 
plenty, froTi which showers of wealth will 
hereafter pour — either into the lap of 
Milwaukee or Chicago. 

Now is the critical time for Milwaukee. 
A short branch of railroad from near 
Sparta, on the Milwaukee and St. Paul 
Railway, to a point opposite Winona, a 
distance of less than thirty miles, is an 
enterprise that every dictate of common 
sense and commercial sagaci y, demands 
should be pushed through, at once. Mil- 
waukee cannot afford to sleep till the con- 
nection is made. With it, she secure? a 
tratle whioh will be worth millions to her 
annually, and which can never be wrest- 
ed from her. 

Without it, a connection will in all 
probability be pushed through from 
Chicago, which will rob her of it all. 
We appeal to the people of Milwaukee 
earnestly, therefore, to take immediate 
bteps to secure this golden prize, before 
it is too late. Do not remain inactive, in 
the hope that the fickle Goddess of For- 
tune will do the workfor you. She helps 
only those who help themselves. 

Both the Minnesota roads we have 
named, are mostly controlled by Milwau- 
kee capitalists, who will do all they can 
consistently with thei» own advantage, to 
further the interests of Milwaukee. But 
it cannot be asked ot theiii, to sacrifice 
the interests of themselves and of their 
roads, to benefit a community who will 
make no effort to secure what is right- 
fully their own. We believe that the 
business men and capitalists of Milwau- 
kee, are fully conscious of the importance 
ol this enterprise, and will speedily exert 
themselves m a degree commensurate 
with the interests at stake.

An Appeal to Reform the 
Present Indian System. 

Dk.vk Fkikxhs: — Again the glad festi- 
val of a Saviour's birth conies to us with 
(lod's message of good will to all people. 
Our hearts ;;ro\v softer with the melody \ 
of Christmas songs and Christmas greet- 
ings, and while we thmk oi all that 
Christmas truths have done to bless our 
hearts and homes and make holy house- 
hold names and ties, we dare not forget 
that in this < hristiaii land there are those 
who never had a Christmas. 

For these lost heatiien men who are 
doomed to perish unless the love of Christ 
shall move our la-arts to save them, 1 
make a Chri>tmas olleiing. Much as I 
have sidl'ered in reproaches and unkind 
.•suspicions, 1 dare not resist the plead- 
ings of my heart. For them, I make my 
plea to a Christian nation with whom for 
good or ill this poor race are bound in in- 
di.^soluble ties by the Providence of (Jod. 

1 have often askeil for a reform of this 
■wretched Indian .system which has thwart- 
ed the generous intentions of the Govern- 
ment, dragged every ln<lian tribe to the 
grave, and always brought to our doors 
a bittyr harvest of sorrow and of blood. 
1 had hoped that some one wiser and bet- 
ter than myself would mark out the pre- 
cise steps <d reform. But I cannot be 
longer silent. These questions cannot 
be fiuried. The two advancing waves of 
civilization from the Atlantic and racitic 
are soon to meet. The Indian's wrongs 
will now be righted or else, which God 
forliid, this nation will hear such a wail 
of agony from the horrors of Indian war 
as we have never heard. Savage men 
whose feet are by an open grave will re- 
quite an awful vengeance, and it will fall 
where it has always fallen — on the inno- 
cent people of the border. 

These men of hard thorny hands who 
go out to subdue tlni wilderness have the 
right to demand protection lor their wives 
and babes. J ask all men who love jus- 
tice and fear God to listen calmly to what 
1 say, and may God touch their hearts to 
redress every wronx- 

rHK Tl'.KATIK.'^: 

The Indians who sell us their hunting 
grounds nmst either become civilized or 
perish. The treaties ought to be framed 
to secure their civilization. Justice, hu- 
manity, fear of God, love of self, every 
motive pleads that they who are sent on 
this errand sho'.dd be men who have 
hearts, who believe in God and are 
ashamed to steal. It sickens one to think 
of what does take place when treaties are 
made. The parties to diem are a Chris- 
tian nation and a htathen people. An 
Indian treatv usuallv has but one end, 
that end is to put money in some while 
man's pocket. The Indian is tohl of his 
great Father's pity and love for red men, 
of his desire to see them made like their 
white brothers, that he has no houses, 
fire canoes, or fire horses, that he knows 
not how to cultivate the soil, that he has 
no schools, nor books, nor teachers, nor 
knowledge of God, that .ill these and 
many more blessings will come to hira 
and his children if he ^vill not turn a deaf 
ear to his great father's words, lie be- 
lieves the lying fable. He knows not how 
this is to be accomplished, but he trusts 
the smooth woi ds. lie cannot read and 
so supposes that all this is in the bond. 
Often there are lying codicils added or 
false interpretations given toabsorblarge 
sums of money for special claims, always 
provided such claimants will p.ay a liberal 
commission to secure them. 

The tnaty is ratified. Then comes 
d f erred hopes the irritation of the pil- 
fering ot annuity goods, the squandering 
of money by fraudulent contracts, the 
theft of annuities, then diseases which 
follow vice begin to hold a carnival in 
tv-ry vdlage; there is no government 
or law to protect person property or life. 
The dep.iUy fire-water changes the savage 
to a devil. When he has only a choice 
of deaths, these long pent up passions 
burst out in the horrors of a massacre. 

The Indian treaty is now the surest 
way to the public treasury. The traders 
and chiefs whom they ean bribe, ask for 
it ; the Agents and Departments find it 
in their interest, and cunning politicians 
who never act unless their palms are 
crossed with silver, know how to use all 
these lor personal ends. Tiiere should 
be no offers made or inducements usei] to 
the I'v'- ins except such as the govern- 
ment will ?ce liontjstly an'! fairlifnlly ful 
fdled. Tne p(jil..-y of bribing cLk Is must 
be stopped. The treaty should not rec- 
ognize a wandering savage tribe as an 
independent nation,' it must be no more 
and iiu less than the simple clear state- 
ment of the phghted faith of a Christian 
nation to its Indian wards. 

Tlir IXDI.VX SY.STEM MUST BE CHAXGKD. 

It is now a system of reward for politi- 
cal lavorites. The Superintendent and 
Agents are geiierally selected by tluir 
Congressional patron as a reward for the 
service done in his own election. Tiie 
case is so plain that no man can secure 
such an oflice, no matter how high his 
character, unless as a reward for |>artv 
service. The agent usually appoints his 
subordinates from the same motives, and 
even if he desired to do his whole duty 
be could not resist the outside political 
pressure, and he must obey party man- 
dates or lose his place. Under ' a wise 
system of government such appointments 
would be mischievous, but they work far 
greater evds under the present Iudi.an 
system. 

THE FIUST REFOl^M REQUISITE IS A GOV- 
ERN .MEN T. 



The popular idea is that the Indian's 
tribal relations furnish him a patriarchal 

government of which the chief is the head, 
ut in fact the chief has no power to 
make or execute law. lie cannot pro- 
tect the innocent or punish the guilty. 
The office of chieftain is only advisory 
and the law of redress is savage ven- 
geance. The Indian may see his wife or 
child killed his house may be torn down, 
his crops destroyed ; he has no remedy 
but revenge. The government of the 
United States never interferes, and so 
long has this evil been permitted that our 
people regard a scalp dance as a savage 
pastime and go to it as a show. Thev 
Lave killed each other in our streets, 
lought beside our villages and we have 
asked no more (piestions than if they were 
swine. Even wrong done them by white 
men goes unpunished. An Indian'woman 
died under the hands of brutal violence 
in a village in this State and no man 
raised his hands to arrest the guilty. The 
only vegtige of law is where we pay a 



premium on crime. If an Indian steals 
from a white man, the government de- 
ducts U'e value of the theft from the an- 
nuity of the tribe ; the thief's share was 
so small he made an hundred fald profit 
by his crime. 

The Indian cannot live without law, 
nor can we afford to have a heathen race 
occupying contiguous territory irrespon- 
sible to any human law. The first neces- 
sity is a government, and such govern- 
ment must come from ourselves. The 
laws must be few and simple, yet such as 
fully protect property, person and life. 
As the Indian reservation is beyond the 
jurisdiction of the State and the cases 
which would arise such as require 
a knowledge of Indian character, there 
must be a resident governor with judi- 
cial powers who shall reside at each res- 
crvaMon. He !:uat oc i i all respects a 
man eminently Htfi '1 f jr his place. The 
agents, farmers, meciianics, teachers and 
employees must act under his di- 
rection and he have the right 
to examine all purchases, contrac;ts. 
and dealings of wliatever kind, with or 
for the Indians. As the stipendary mag- 
istrate of the government he must have a 
small body of troops residing on the res- 
ervation who shall act under his direc'ian 
a-s the polire to arrest and punish crime. 
There will be some «lilHculty in inaugur- 
ating this system on account of the evils 
of the present system, but whenever the 
Indians learn that the new system has 
the support of the general government 
they will at once approve it on account of 
the security which it gives to persons, 
property and life ; as a fiict all those who 
desire to live as civilized men are now in 
favor of it. 2s o one can conceive of the 
constant fear under which the Indian lives. 
I can count up more than a score of mur- 
ders which have been committed almost 
under my eye during my visits to the In- 
dian country. I have often known those 
who honestly commenced a civilized life, 
utterly disheartened by the destruction of 
their crops, the killing of their cattle, and 
the loss of every reward for their toil. 
No white man would labor unless he had 
guarantee that he should reap the harvest 
which he sowed. 

OOVEKX.MENT IXFLUEXCE OX THE SIDE 
OF LVIIOR. 

The next step must be to place the in- 
fluence of the government on the side of 
labor. History enfor. es the teaching of 
God's holy word that man must live by 
the sweat of his brow. Instead of idling 
his time away begrimed with paint which 
the Department has furnished, or engag- 
ed in heathen dances with government 
tomahawks and scalping knives, he must 
be taught to work. He must gain that 
manhood which comes from the possession 
of something he calls his own. 

The Indian reservation instead of being 
as It now IS, the property of the tribe, 
over no part of which can the individual 
claim a right to the soil, should be sur- 
veyed and each household given a piece 
of eighty acres of land, which should be 
inalienable and whenever the young man 
marries and settles in life he also should 
receive a piece of land as his own. The 
Department under proper restrictions 
must aid him to build a house, furnish 
him with seed, implements of husbandry 
and break up his land until he is able to 
do so for himself. AVith proper reward 
to those who show industry and frugality, 
it would not be long before the whole 
tribe would feel the good influence of the 
new system. 

THE PRE.SEXT VICIOUS SYSTEM OF TRADE 
MIST B?: AIUXDOXED. 

So long as the Indian has no relations 
with the Government, the trade is foun- 
ded in mutual good will. The Indian 
looks to his trader for the outfit for his 
hunts, and the trader dare not oppress the 
Indian, lest he lose his debt. The Gov- 
ernment now offers a premium upon dis- 
honesty. The trader goes into the Indian 
country, by the authority of the Govern- 
ment. He sells goods to A, B, C, D, 
and F. A, H, C, and D, catch furs and 
pay thtir debts. F sells the furs he has 
taken to the nearest whisky seller. If he 
were dealing with white men, the trader 
would charge his bad debt to profit and 
loss. Not so, in the Indian county; he 
understands that the time will come when 
these Indians are to be removed No 
matter if they live on a reservation pledg- 
ed to them as their home forever; he 
knows full well that if that home is any- 
where in the path of civilization — it it be 
anywhere that white men may covet it — 
no plea of justice, nor humanity, nor 
self respect, nor fear of God, will save 
the Indian for an hour. Whenever the 
new treaty is made, he and every other 
trader will add up every bad debt of 
themselves and fathers, and it will be al- 
lowed as a claim against the patrimony of 
the tribe. 

The history of Indian claims is one to 
make an American blush lor shame. It 
is the outside pressure of traders' attor- 
neys, commissioners who make our Indian 
treaties — and it leaves as it did on the 
Sioux a deep, bitter feeling of resentment, 
to be nursed in revengeful passions, until 
the prete-xt came for another reckoning of 
blood. 

The trader who is permitted to reside 
on the reservation should be brought un- 
der some regulations like post sutlers in 
the military service. The tariff of prices 
should be affixed by the Governor of the 
Indians or by some proper board. If it 
is necessary to protect our soldi -rs at re- 
mote posts from extortion, the necessity 
is much greater in behalf of our heathen 
wards, who can neither read nor write, 
and who know little of commercial values; 
The present practice of paying the debts 
of the vicious and indolent out of the pat- 
rimony of the whole nation opens the 
door to fraud and robbery, and at the 
same time pays a premium upon laziness 
and dishonesty. 

THE SCHOOLS. 

There must be a carefully matured ed- 
ucational system. Jt must be such as is 
designed to lead a heathen race to the 
light of Christian civilization. The end 
Hi view -should be not merely to teach 
them the routine of reading a few words 
in English, which they do not understand, 
but to teach them with this, those indus- 
trial pursuits which will prepare 
them to live as civilized men and 
women. The teachers should be 
men and women of deep-rooted christian 
principle, of warm hearts ; those who 
would feel it a pleasure to work for the 
elevation of the human race. Where 
there is a missionary school of high or- 
der, it would be proper for the mission- 
[ ary to draw a specified sum from the com- 
I mon school fund, according to the num- 
j ber of children in his care. The employ- 
^ ees must be persons of high moral char- 
; aeter — no trader, agent, or employee, or 
I clerk, or any other person, (missionaries 
j excepted,) should be allowed to live on a 
reservation, or be in the Government 
employ, unless he has a lawful wife. 
They must be better than so many pen- 
sioners, fed at the public crib. All sala- 
ries should be ample for a prudent sup- 
port, and no officer should be subject to 
removal, except for misconduct or neg- 
lect of their duties. 



A Board of Visitors selected from the 
members of the religious denominations 
which have missions among the Indians, 
should be appointed, whose duty it shall 
be to recommend to the Governor proper 
persons for all subordinate offices, as far- 
mers, blacksmiths, carpenters, teachers, 
&c. They shall have authority at all 
times to examine the aifairs of the Agen- 
cy. They must attend all payments, ex- 
amine quality and (juantity of goods fur- 
nished, and make an annual report upon 
such matters as concern the welfare of 
the Indians. The only compensatiop they 
shall receive shall be a sum sufficient to 
defray their traveling expenses. 

In this brief outline of necessary re- 
forms, I have no preference for any plan 
of my own. 1 will welcome any plan 
which offers the hope of reforming the 
evi s of the present system. I have plead- 
ed for four years, in public and private, 
for a reform. I am sick at heart with de- 
ferred hope. I have waited only to see 
the heathen sinking daily into a deeper 
depth of pollution and woe, and to wit- i 
ness the massacre of friends dear as my j 
life. In the future I can see the gather- 
ing of the same elements of savage hate 
for a more fearful harvest of blood. For 
these border friends — for the heathen red 
men, for our blessed Saviour's sake, who 
for them and us hung on the cross — I 
pray that nothing may longer prevent the 
fulhllment of our duty to our heathen 
wards. 

1 cannot close this appeal without call- 
ing public attention to the sad condition 
of the friendly Sioux and Winnebagoes. 
Durinjr the late massacres there were 
Indians who proved faithful to us, at the 
risk of life. Taopi, a chief who is heie 
at Faribault, has a certificate from (Jen. 
^ibley, commending him for his fidelity, 
and ceitifying that he was the means of 
rescuing our white captives. He was liv- 
ing as a civilized man, on his farm, at the 
Agency. He lost everything. He has 
no resource for himself or family, but 
charity; and there are many others, both 
of the upper and lower Sioux, equally 
faithful, in the same sad case. They have 
no means to live as civilized men ; and 
they dare not hunt, for fear of being kill- 
ed by some white man who is ignorant of 
their character. Of those removed to the 
Upper Missouri, there is not one who 
was not actjuitted by the ^Military Com- 
mission, and many of them were faithful 
and true. Every motive of gratitude de- 
manded fjr these men proper protection. 
They were taken to the Upper Missouri, 
pLaced in a country so poor that it is im- 
possible for them to live, unless the Gov- 
ernment feeds them. Many of these 
friendly Sioux were christians. They 
proved their faithfulness to their holy re- 
ligion, under the most trying circumstan- 
ces. They had the right to our protec- 
tion and care. The \V'innebagoes lived 
within our borders. The justly excited 
state of our people, and the imminent 
danger which grew out of our Indian sys- 
tem made it prudent that these men 
should be removed. But as no guilt was 
fastened upon them, it was due to justice 
and humanity that we should not drive 
them from a reservation pledged to th«:m 
by the good faith of our Government. 
These questions, growing out of the ne- 
cessity of their removal, could have read- 
ily been arranged by negotiation. They 
should have received a home etjually val- 
uable, and as well adapted to their sup- 
port. They had no option ; they were 
forcibly removed, with the Sioux, to a 
country which all who have seen agree is so 
poor that it is only a question of time 
when they shall sink into a grave. 

I have been informed that nearly one- 
fourth of the whole number of Indians 
removed have died from starvation or dis- 
ease, and yet we wonder why we have In- 
dian wars. The Government owes to 
itself, to the protection of ths border, and 
the peace of the tribes beyond, that this 
injustice shall be redressed. 

In making this appeal I am aware that 
I may touch the (juick of some men's 
heart. It may be supposed that I wish 
to assail the officials of the present Indi- 
an system ; or that I have a morbid sym- 
paty for these heathens. God is my wit- 
ness that 1 have no other motive than to 
reform a system all men admit to be per- 
nicious and wrong. I have always thought 
that most of these evils grew out of the 
system, and that it was impossible for 
any one man to stand up against. I 
cheerfully bear witness to the 
fidelity of some Government employees ; 
but they have failed signally, because 
the system was stronger than their per- 
sonal efforts. 

The welfare and safety of all our pio- 
neer settlers is bound uj) in this question, 
and it is cruelty to an innocent and de- 
fenceless border population, to leave 
them unprotected, subject to the Indian 
massacre which our present system is 
sure to excite. Conscious of the recti- 
tude of my own motives,! have cheerful- 
ly borne the unjust imputations cast upon 
me. It was easier to meet the excited 
prejudices of the people than to violate 
my own conscience and breast the anger 
of God.

A Speech by Secretary Staxtox. — 
On Christmas Day, Mr. Stanton visited 
the soldiers in Stanton Hospital, Wash- 
ington, and made them a brief speech 
He said : Soldiers, 1 hope that when the 
next anniversary of the day you are now 
celebrating occurs, that this war will be 
ended, and you will have returned to 
your homes and your firesides. When 
you shall have so returned, you will be 
considered as honored guests of the na- 
tion. You have periled your lives on the 
battlefield, or you have suffered in camp 
from the ravages of disease incidental 
to great armies. But whet ber you have 
been wounded or been attacked by sick- 
ness, you are equally entitled to consid- 
eration at the hands of you country. If 
you have been wounded in battle, or suf- 
fer from sickness contracted in the ser- 
vice of your country, I will see that jou 
have a proper reward given you. 

Soldiers : If we can end this rebellion 
with the extinction of slavery, will it not 
be a great triumph ? You will, at the 
end ot this great rebellion, when making 
a review of it, have the satisfaction of 
knowing that yon have aided the Govern- 
ment of the United States in discharging 
the duties incumbent on that (Jovern- 
ment when it i^as in peril. And further- 
more, you will experiencs the feeling that 
you have materially aided to make the 
country free. [Applause.] 

Senator Wilson also made a few re- 
marks which were well received.

n»Tt •»»* llt-mp i'nlture — a new 
jM>urce of %»>»l«h for our Far'ntr*. 

Thcic arc several braiuhes of wealth so 
ncplciteil by our farmers that it niustbc ODiy 
ignorance of the fait which pn vents them 
from ^raspinp the golden oppartnnity. AVe 
mentioned a few days binec that §12000 worth 
of lIop.«,an article indi,_'enoiis to Minnesota, 
have Ixen imported intnSt. Paul amiuully lor 
severnl years.an amount that should have gone 
into the pockets of our farmers. Here is another 
neglected source of wealth to the farmers.mc- 
ehanics, merchants and shippers of the great 
West. Weallude totlic flax and hemp cul- 
ture, which is just now receiving an impetus 
likely to send it at once into the front, ranks 
of great national interests. Congress at its 
last session :ipproi)rialed igt20,000 'for investi- 
gi.iions toting the practicability of cultivat- 
ing flax and hemp as substitutes for cotton,* 
and placed the matter in the liandn of Isaac 
Newton, Commissioner of the Department of 
Agriculture, to do what was right and l)est 
in the premises. Mr. Newton appointed three 
commissioners with power to dispose of the 
money to the best advantage of the objects 
lor which it was bestowed. The gentlemen 
—severally from the States of Khode Island, 
rennsylvania and Ohio— met, organized, and 
gave public notice of what was done by Con- 
gress, and called upon the growers of llax and 
hemp and fie maniifactuiers throughout the 
country to come forward and show what 
could be done. Tlie result has been such as 
to ast inish every man, however familiar wuli 
th« productions of the CA.)untry ho might sup- 
pose himself to be. The lirst thing to startle 
« no is ihr discovery that hundreds of tons of 
flax straw Jiavc l)ecn destroyed yearly— used 
to mend roads ia some places— the flax having 
been grown merely fiT the seed. The next 
thing told, and calculated to increase the as- 
tonishmelit, that already machinery is so per- 
fected that 'his same (lax straw might bo tak- 
en, cicanvd and prepared ready for admix- 
ture with cotton or wool, at a cost of only 
elert-n centsper pountl— cotton beinp sixty to 
scvinty cents. This is no Chimcr.i, it is an 
accomplished fact. The Jiberized material is 
on exhibiti n at the Department of Agricul- 
ture; the cost of preparation and the mode 
are all put down in honest, straight-forward 
figures. There too is shown cloth woven by 
the clear flax. It is mixed with wool, and knit 
into stockings ; in a word, it is cottonhed, and 
th:)t, too, at a cost which puts it below the 
present price of cotton, as far as 10 is to 70. 

1 hat it will soon be a branch of ouf manu- 
factures is a fact. Capitalists in Chicago have 
t.iken hold of the matter.and that city is ab.>ut 
to have an immense ilax-libiing manulactory 
starttd in Lcr midst. The capital is said to 
be already assured, and before another year 
elapses it is exiicctcil the manufactoiy will be 
in successful operation. Let our farmers pon- 
der thesi' facts. There are crops more profit- 
able tlian wheat at (ifty centi-pcr bushel. Send 
to the Department of Agriculture, which will 
give any inforunition on the subject. 

The Sioux War Embalmed in Toe- 
Titv.— Wliile Histories of the Sioux War have 
been launched on the public by the dozen, 
that memorable event seems to have stirred 
up only one poet. Mr. Daniel Kelscy has just 
coi>yrighted— at the Clerk's Olhce of the Dis- 
trict Court of the United States— a poem of 
sibout fifty stanzas, descriptive of the Sioux 
war. We give a couple of verses. Speak jig 
of the settlers who lied into tlie woods to es- 
cape, he says : 

Let us reflect— >h let us think ? 

Wh It was their food, what was their drink. 

To save themselves and little child 

They lived on fouil that growethwild!

The Ice Bound Steamers.— reavy, 
a photographer at McGregor, Iowa, has taken 
three unusually excellent pictures of the 
steamers Keokuk and Favorite, as they aie 
ice-locked in the river opposite that city. The 
pictures make the "white collars" of the 
smoke stacks look as familiar, while every 
rail, cord, line and stay stands out as plain as 
life. 

The design is to represent where the boats 
lay. The Keokuk is about three hundred 
yards from shore, and about five hundred 
from the McGregor Landing. The Favorite 
has since been got out. The rough ice about 
the Keokuk leads us tj think that winter has 
hugged things close in that vicinity. These 
l)oats l)clonged to the St. Paul and LaCrosse 
line last season, and were on their way South 

when froze in. 

••* — 

Better in an LiiunoADS. — We al- 
ways taFd that Burbank's La Crosse line was 
better than a railroad, and the late stormy 
weather proves it true. While the La Crosse 
llailro id did not run for five days owing to 
snow and cold, Burbank's Stages left on time 
and arrived on time the whole week. The 
register at the Post Office shows that not a 
stage on ali his lines have missed a trip, or 
been Iwhind time through the entire cold.snap. 

When the Eastern mails fail, therefore, it 

must be attributed to the non-arrival of the 

mail at \a Crosse, and not to any failure of 

the Burbank line. Such a thing never occurs, 

. — -»*^ 

The Colt> Weather.— The only way 
to be comfortable in cold" weather is to keep 
warm. This is easily done in day time, but 
not so easy at night. Every one will rejoice 
to learn, therefore, that R. 0. Strong of the 
Carpet Store in Rogers Block, has just receiv- 
ed a huge supply of feather beds, comforters, 
blankets and such articles. There's no ex- 
cuse now for freezing to death in bed. Go to 
Strong's and yet some comforters and feather 
beds !

Theke have been no cases before U. 
S. Commissioner Cardozo all this week, for 
ev.tsion of the Revenue law. Cardozo puts 
delinqucats through so unniercifully that 
they all pay up now, in time. He says he 
« ishes it was optional with him to inflict the 
death penalty for such offences — the hanging 
of some pour Arab about once a week would 

be salutary. No doubt.

Found Frozen to Death. — It is re- 
ported on reliable authority that two Germans 
who went out from New Ulm a few days ago 
to hunt, were found frozen to death in their 
tent on the Cottonwood river, on the 3d inst. 
It was supposed that they did not understand 
wood-craft well, and had not a supply of fuel 
and clothing on hand. Sleeping in a tent 
with insufficient clwtliing and no means of 
building a fire, in mid-winter, is somewhat 

hazardous.

The following horrible story appears 
in the London Times ; it is from the pen 
of Mr. Sidney Hodges, Secretary of the 
Royal Cornwall rolytechnic Society : 

For some years past rumors have been 
current that the brother of a mason 
named Por'.er, living in comfortable cir- 
cumstances at Flushing, had been kept 
for many y» ars in close confinement in a 
small room at the back of the premises 
in which Porter and his family reside. 
Heart-rending cries and howls have been 
repeatedly heard by the neighbors, es- 
pecially on cold nights ; but, although 
the .sympathy of many was roused, no 
one deeuied it his duty to incjuiie into 
tlie circumstances of the case, not dream- 
ing, probably, of the horrors that were 
to be revealed. 

Kather more than a year ago Dr. Byrne 
a well-known medical practioiier from tlie 
country of Durham, now residing iu this 
town, was compelled to seek the warm 
climate of Flushing for his health, and iri- 
eidentally heard these rumors. Not sat- 
isfied to allow the matter to remain unin- 
vestigated, he collected all the evidence 
he could, and was so satisfied that the 
case was one demanding a strict inquiry 
that he communicated the facts to the 
Home Secretary, who at once appointed 
iiim special couimissioiier, and sent down 
two other commissioners, who, in com- 
pany with Ur. Byrne, went to Porter's 
house on Thursday last and demanded 
admission to his brother. Porter him- 
self was absent ; but, after some little 
parley with the other inmates, Dr. Byrne, 
who had obtained some insight into tlie 
plan of the premises, led the way through 
the house across a yard and up a flight ot 
steps, where, concealed from view round 
a corner, they found a door, which ad- 
mitted them to the den in which the lu- 
natic was confined. 

' The sight which met their gaze was 
too revolting to be described with all its 
hornd details. The place consisted ol 
four bare, wet, plaster walls, with a small 
window on one side, and the door by 
which they had entered; a doorway op- 
posite, formerly communicating with the 
house, was plastered up, so as to cut olf 
all communication except by the ilight of 
steps at the biick. In one corner of the 
room was a wretched truckle bedstead, 
with cross pieces of wood, rotten with 
tilth, about six inches wide and the same 
distance apart. On these bare boards 
was crouched a being more resembling a 
baboon than a man, dr.awn .-ind crampetl, 
from long exposure and suffering, out of 
all form of liumanity, stark nuked, and 
with only two old rotten bags for a cov- 
erlet, i have said like a baboon, from 
tlie peculiar form into which the limbs 
were drawn ; the knees, almost touched 
the chin, and were pressed close down 
upon the chest, 1 imagine for warmth ; the 
feet close together and bent down one 
over the other,also I imagine for warmth ; 
the hands clinched and brought up close 
to the chin ; the arms closely pressed 
against the sides. The knee and hip 
joints were also stillening. The floor 
and the walls were one mass of 
accumulated filth, the floor was rotten 
with it, the stench horrible ; and there 
are other circumstances of the case too 
dreadful for publication. 

For upward of twenty years the tender 
mercies of his nearest relatives have con- 
signed him to this living tomb — not a rag 
to lie upon, not even a wisp of straw; 
nothing but the naked board, and the two 
old bags to cover him. Would a ranng 
maniac be consigned to such a doom ? 
God forbid. What, let us ask, is the 
mental condition of this poor wretch? 
Simply imbecile. A most mild, benevo- 
lent expression of countenance, a child- 
like submission to all that is done to him, 
no symptoms of violence or even anger 
of any kind, and strong indications ot in- 
telligence in many things, even after 
after these weary years of neglect and 
cruelty. On Sunday, in company with 
Dr. Byrne and some friends, I visited the 
poor creature for the purpose of getting 
a sketch of the remarkable position in 
which he had remained for so many years. 
The arrangements being then completed, 
two intelligent keepers from the county 
asylum washed, dressed, and took him 
away to that admirably conducted estab- 
lishment at Bodmin, where we fervently 
hope that both his mental and bodily con- 
dition may soon be impioved. 

Of all the moving incidents of the cise, 
not the least was the scene on emerging 
from the house. Many hundreds of peo- 
ple were collected round the conveyance, 
to which the keeper carried him in his 
arms like a child. "My God ! can that 
be a man?" "God bless you, Dr. 
Byrne ! " was the exclamations that burst 
from the lips of the multitude. Few eyes 
were dry, especially when some who had 
known him when a strong intelligent 
youth pressed forward and shook him by 
the hand. I am told the Commissioners 
stated that in an experience of forty years 
they had never met with a case so awful.

A Toucbinc Story, 

The Providence papers tell the follow- 
ing story ot Mr. James G. Haskell, a na- 
tive of Pawtucket, near sixty years of age, 
who has recently arrived from Graves 
county, Kentucky, about thirty-five miles 
from Paducah, where he has been forced 
to leave a valuable far/** '^ "^.50 acres, and 
a comfortable home jjequence of 

his Union sentiments : 

Deserted by wife and family, who are 
strongly in .sympathy with the rebels save a 
dnaghter who resided in Missouri, and whose 
hasband, by tlic name of Taylor, was killed 
by guerrillas more than a year ago; a son iu 
the rebel army, who was taken prisoner at 
Fort Donelscn nnd cariicd to Chieago, and 
upon his exchange again re-enlisted,' v/as, as 
Mr. H. supposed, killed at the battle of Chat- 
tanooga; annoyed by guerrilla bands until 
his subsistence had l)een taken from him, and 
he in common with his neighbors had been 
forced to seek protection under the Federal 
guns at Paducah ; these are a few of the many 
sufferinfxs this loyal patriot has been called 
to endure, until he has at last found rest upon 
the hill side of his youth. 

In the recent rebel raid several of Mr. Has- 
kell's neighlwrs were murdered, as he has 
learned by letters from home. His farm is 
still occupied by his family, all of whom are 
secesU. Strange as it may socm, the dittfcrencc 
In politlcaf sentiment between himself and his 
wife and daughters has never causea any in- 
terruption in domestic harmony. In the let- 
ters recently received from his wife, she con- 
gratulates iiim on his being absent from home 
during the progress of the late raid, and says 
his life would not have been spared by the 
rebels if they had found him. 

— There is an old female contraband 
following the army of the Potomac, who has 
the reputation of being half crazed. She re- 
peats the following dogerel verse : 

"In sixty-one, the war begun ; 
In sixty-two, it was half through ; 
In sixty-three, the niggers were f^ce ; 
In sixty-four, the war will be o'er," 

It is more .han probable that the darkey's pre- 
diction will prove correct.

U&»iil01> M lltPP'.E OX THE I^ 

We publish to-uay on our second ])agf 
a,» " encyclical- letter oi Bishop Whip- 
ple to his Hock, one of his periodical 
»-pistles to the hard-hearted and heathen- 
Uh Galatians ot this part of the world, 
on tht subject ot Indian wrongs. 

T.i'u-e it« uothia<5 more adiuirable than 
the C'h'i^^tian benevolence which inspires 
this appeal on behali of our Indian uei^^h- 
bars, as there is nothing more desirable 
than the objects soii-ht to be attained by 
It. Yet it is iaipo5jible to read this elo- 
quent address without being convinced 
that tae g^d lii.hop is largely the dupe 
of his own fecUngs; for there is really 
nothing in the world so credulous as 
phihiatliropv or so easily imi.osed upon 
as kindness of heart. The strong sympa- 
thies of the generous easily degenerate 
into prejudices; the ardent champion 
siiik'^ reality into the reckless parllzan ; 
and ilie romantic knight that goes forth 
with s'.vord and spear to rescue distressed 
damsels from the grasp of giants, is 
found in the very madness of deseiseU 
gener jsity, wreaking his wayward veng- 
eance on a tlo>k of innocent sheep. 

We are airaidthat the reverend Bishop 
is prevented by his partiality for the un- 
fortunate beings who are the special ob- 
jects of his sympathy— from doing justice 
to the scarcely lc:.3 unfortunate beings 
who are the special objects of his denun- 
ciation?. I« ihe iixcess of his love for 
the Indian he forgets the charity which is 
due the white man, and the deluge of 
compasaion on one side drains oK" the 
e«iual llow of Christian kindness on the 
other. The good Bishop sees the rela- 
tions of the red and while man through a 
lens which on one side exaggerates to 
romance the virtues and sutFeriiig of the 
savfjge race, and on the other distorts to 
caricature the features of his assumed 
oppressors. The ruthless assassins of 
our border se.tlers arc to him the martyrs 
and the aven-ers of a system of cruel 
wrongs and outrages ; though he deems 
the work of vengeance so ill performed 
as to rerpiire a little supplementary 
slaugbstr on his own acco'int. 

And the MMewakanton followers of 
Little Crow, hardly assailed the Indian 
traders and officials in their power, with 
more indiscriminate ruthlessness with 
thetowahawk, than this good bishop of the 
diocese of .Minnesota, with his pen. Age, 
sex, personal reputation, public position, 
every title to respect or consideration 
which these poor devils hold dear. Is 
swept away, without stint or hesitation, 
in this wholesale massacre of good names. 
The good Bishop would probably find 
it difficult to support his sweeping aspei- 
sims of the character of the men who ha{.- 
pen to be connected with the Indian sys- 
tem in this State by specific charges 
against individu.ils. Infiecd we are sure 
that he would be theGrst to exonerate, m 
detail, the men, whom he unhesitatingly 
charges In the mass with crimes that 
should brand their perpetrators with in- 
famy. 

These loose generalities of invective 
which propagate a vulgar slander at the 
expense of truth and personal justice can 
hardly help the cause of philanthropic or 
any other reform. 

Each of the men who have been select- 
ed to fill responsible posts in connection 
with Indian affiiirs in this State has a 
rcpntation as dear to him as the kind 
hearted Clergyman who assails him by the 
necessary — but doubtless unintentional — 
implication of his language ; and what- 
ever their predecessors may have been, 
the Indian officials in this State are, we 
are sure, as far above the imputation 
which the Bishop has thoughtlessly cast 
upon their class, as Is the Bishop himsell

NUMBER 7. 



While our late Judge of Probate was 
a candidate for re-election, last fall, he 
was wont to iadulge in the threat, that if 
his opponent was elected ho would not 
surrender the books and records of the 
office but would continue to act as Judge 
in defiance of the voice of the people. 

The ground upon which he planted 
himself w.as that instead of being elected 
1 1 fill a vacancy, he was chosen to fill a 
term of two years. Judge Iloyt. it will 
be remembered was elected in 18G1 Pro- 
bate Jud.^e of Ramsey County. A short 
time after entering upon the duties of his 
office he resigned and Judge Crowell was 
appointed to fiill the vacancy until the 
nexf. general election. At this election 
Ju.lge Lambert w s chosen (or the re- 
maining year of Judge Iloyfs unexpired 
term, which closed on the first of this 

month. 

By becoming a candidate last Novem- 
ber for re-election Lambert virtually ad- 
mitted that his term of office was about 
to expire, but seeing that defeat was cer- 
tain, he concluded to retain by foul what 
he could not hope to possess by fair 
means. 

Judge Crowell was duly elected and 
has filed his bond, taken the oath of office, 
and is the legally <iualified Probate Judge 
of Ramsey county. Upon going to Lam- 
bert a few days ago for the public docu- 
ments connected with the office, he posi- 
tively refused to surrender them, assert- 
ing that he was elected for the full term, 
instead of for Judge j Hoyts unexpired 
term. The law on this subject is plain 
beyond dispute, stating that officers 
elected to fill vacancies, "may hold the 
same during the unexpired term for which 
they were elected, and until their succes- 
sors are elected and qualified." 

We understand that Judge Crowell 
will take steps immediately to oust the 
petty usurper who clung to his illegal po- 
sition in the School Board until he was 
kicked out by a unannnous vote of the le- 
gal members, and now seems anxious lor 
a second application before vacating the 
Probate office. It should be borne in 
mind that any Probate business transact- 
ed with Lambert will be nuU and void, as 
Jud'-e Crowell is the authorized of- 

ticer.

The ''Nick of Time" for Milwau- 
kee. 



Twenty-one irolunteers came up from 
La Crescent, Houston county, a day or 
two since, and were mustered into the 
service of our Tcnerablc Uncle Samuel. 
This is doing nobly, and if ever)- town 
in the State would do as well, we should 
hear nothing more about a draft in ^lin- 
nesota, under the present call at least. 

In the entire enrollment of La Cres- 
cent there are but one hundred and eight 
names, and this includes both classes, as 
well as the blind, the halt and the lame. 
The town raised by private subscription 
one hnndred dollars bounty for each re- 
cruit, and then went to work and secured 
the recruits for the bonnty. W. H. 
Lapham and C. J. Hayes are entitled 
to a large proportion of the credit for 
this patriotic movement. They said, 
I "come boys," instead of "go," and thus 
placed themselves in a position where 
they could work effectually. George F. 
Potter, Clerk elect of the Supreme Court, 
made the liberal subscription of one hun- 
dred dollars to the private bounty fund, 
and secured bis man. 

This is the way to go to work to secure 
volunteers. The draft is liable to be or- 
dered any day and the only way to escape 
it is by volunteering. The bill intro- 
duced into Congress immediately upon 
its rc-.issembling on the 5th, providing for 
the payment of large bounties until 
March, will undoubtedly pass, and by 
adding to this the stimulus of private 
bounties, men can be procured. In other 
words follow the example of La Crescent, 
which is the best, (because the bounty is 
the highest) that has been set by any 

town in the State.

And when so good a man as the Bishop 
allows himself by inadv«rtence to inflict 
80 gross a wrong in the pursuit of a good 
object, the reflection forces itself upon us, 
whether the asserted wrongs inflicted by 
the Indian pystein are not also partly a 
necessaiy result of those inherent imper- 
fections of Luman nature which are never 
wantin" even in the wisest and best. Is 
there no dishonesty in this world except 
in the Indian trade? Are there no fraud- 
ulent contracts except when Indians are 
the sufferers ? Does not the apothecary 
"pestle bis poisoned person" outside the 
Reservation, and the baker feed other 
poor than they with "alum and plaster?" 
In this wretched age of shoddy and ras- 
cality and slander, shall we go to the 
frontier for scapegoats to bear the bur- 
den of all the sins of civilization ? 

The Bishop, we fear, is the victim of 
an illusion common to the sanguine be- 
nevolence of inexperience if he expects to 
build up a special Utopia for the Indian 
in the midst of this wicked world, espe- 
cially on the borders of Minneseta ; or re- 
store the Red man to the blissful Eden 
from which the white man was long ago 
expelled for his sins, especially with the 
white man for the guardian angel of his 
Paradise restored. 



cannon balls and shells flew over the 
ships and struck the town. Considering 
that this accidental bombardment lasted 
several hours and reduced the town to 
ashes, we don't believe this will go down. 
EarlRussel is said to have given the or- 
der for hostile operations against Japan 
without the assent of his colleagues, and 
will probably get a sharp rap on the 
knuckles by Palmerston. Palmerston 
meanwhile has interfered and sent Sir 
Rutherford Alcock, who has been Britisk 
Resident in Japan for over three years, 
speaks the language and understands 
the customs of the people, as Ambas- 
sador to that country with the view of

Mr. Disraeu, the well-known Eng- 
lish author and statesman, has been the 
recipient of a legacy of forty thousand 
pounds (i$200,000), from an old Jewish 
lady, Mrs. Wellyamr by name, who was 
very proud of the celebrity of Disraeli, 
whose grandfather was of the Jewish per- 
suasion. Her acquaintance with him 
arose from her inquiring whether he was 
descended from a Spanish family, as she 
claimed to be. His reply led to a re- 
joinder, and, though the correspondents 
never met, the intimacy by letter was 



From the Daily Wisconsin. 

>/e have received from a gentleman 
interested in the railroad aflairs of Min- 
nesota, a few notes of the progress of the 
railroad svstera that is being developed 
in that State, which will be of interest to 
our readers. The future growth of Mil- 
waukee, depends to a great extent upon 
the development and prosperity of Min- 
nesota, and if we are wise, and awake to 
our true interests, we will seize upon 
evciy opportunity to inform ourselves ol 
the resources and promise of our neigh 
boring State, and to turn the fruits of 
her vast fields of wealth in this direction. 
Before the present cold spell of weath- 
er, work upon the Winona and St. Peter 
Railroad was in full operation. This road 
takes a slightly northwestern direction 
from Winona, and it is projected to ter- 
minate it at St. Peter, a town of consid- 
erable size on the Minnesota River, near- 
ly 2U0 miles from Winona. It is already 
built about twenty-seven out from \\\- 
nona, and as. soon as they get to Saint 
Charles, which is thirty miles from Wi- 
nona, they purpose running passenger 
and freight trains from Winona to St 
Charles and back. In the meantime tlie 
road will be continued westward as fast 
as possible. A very large force of hands 
has been kept constantly engaged upon 
it, and tacy continved to employ as many 
as can be worked to advantage. 

There is some talk now of constructing 
a branch from Rochester, on the Winona 
& St. Peter Road to St. Paul, and sur- 
veys will probably be commenced forth- 
with, for this purpose. The distance 
from Winona to Rochester is fifty miles, 
and if this branch were constructed, it 
would make the shortest railroad route to 
St. Paul, by a considerabU; distance. 

The Cedar Valley railroad, which is 
now in process of construction from St, 
Paul southward, dowii through Minneso- 
ta and Iowa, crosses the Winona and St. 
Peter railroad at Owatonna, which is 
eighiy miles west of Winona. 

Both of these roads will be pushed 
to a speedy completion, and they both 
penetrate the garden of Minnesota, a 
State which is fruitful beyond description. 
A luxuriant soil and a healthful climate, 
^ive to Minnesota superior advantage* 
over almost every other State in the 
Northwest. 

The country through which the W. & 
St, P. R. R. is being constructed, is 
mostly rich, rolling prairie, and its re- 
sources are literally inexhaustible. A 
good evidence of its fertility and pros- 
perity is afforded in the fact that already 
the daily receipts of wheat at Winona 
are from 10,000 to 15,000 bushels , This 
road, therefore, as well as the Cedar Val- 
ey Road, comprises a huge horn of 
plenty, froTi which showers of wealth will 
hereafter pour— either into the lap of 
Milwaukee or Chicago. 

Now is the critical time for Milwaukee. 
A short branch of railroad from near 
Sparta, on the Milwaukee and St. Paul 
Railway, to a point opposite Winona, a 
distance of less than thirty miles, is an 
enterprise that every dictate of common 
sense and commercial sagaci y, demands 
should be pushed through, at once. Mil- 
waukee cannot afford to sleep till the con- 
nection is made. With it, she secures a 
trade which will be worth millions to her 
annually, and which can never be wrest- 
ed from her. 

Without it, a connection will in all 
probability be pushed through froPa 
Chicago, which will rob her of it a\l. 
We appeal to the people of Milwaukee 
earnestly, therefore, to take immediate 
steps to secure this golden prize, Viefore 
it is too late. Do not remain inactive, in 
the hope that the fickle Goddess of For- 
tune will do the work for you. She helps 
only those who help themselves. 

Both the Minnesota roads Ave have 
named, are mostly controlled by Milwau- 
kee capitalists, who will do all they can 
consistently with thei? own advantage, to 
further the interests of Milwaukee. But 
it cannot be asked of them, to sacrifice 
the interests of themselves and of their 
roads, to benefit a community who will 
make no effort to secure what is right- 
fully their own. We believe that tbe 
business men and capitalists of Milwar.- 
kee, are fully conscious of the importar.ce 
ol this enterprise, and will speedily ey.ert 
themselves in a degree comm'ijnsv.rate 
with the interests at stake.

lload there are four passenger trains and 
several freight trains jlockaded, but the 
company are exerting themselves to the 
utmost to remedy the lilBculty. 
From the Daily (Milwauke:>) Wisconsin, Jan. 4th. 
For three or four dsys the city has been 
without any mails from any point, and it 
has been as though we were locked up on 
some sea-gift isle, 80 far as any communi- 
cation with the rest ol the world was con- 
cerned. It has blocked up business and 
all other arrangements completely. 

Lieut. Shaughne.ssy, of the Police 
Corp.s, informs us that he started on the 
LaCrossc road (Milwiukcc and St. Paul) 
last Ihursday afternoon, about half past 
five o'clock. There were two passenger 
coaches pretty lull, a id thev could only 
get about as far as two miles the other 
Side of llichlield. 

They were unable to get any luitber 
on account of the snow being so badly 
drifted, and were oUiged to remam in 
xho. cars that night. They si;liered a 
frrtat deal from the .:old, but Conductor 
Lvmau took the ladio s and gentlemen in- 
to' the baggage car, v^here they were able 
to keep up a good fir2. In the passenger- 
cars they had coal s toves, which would 
not burn well whey the cars were stand- 
ing still. The be.t if .Qare was taken ol 
the women and chile' ren. 

Friday morning the passengers scatter- 
ed around among t le farmers' houses. 
Meanwhile the engine started back to get 
help, and the boiler "[ot froze up. Svve- 
ral of the passengers had ears, hands and 
feet frost-bitten but none dangerously. 
Conductor (Jeorge C lason, who happened 
to be on this train, liad his leet Irozen. 
The passengers all got well-led at the dif- 
ferent farm houses. ^ . . ,An 
Late Saturday nij.ht a train with lUU 
laborers came to their relief from Mil- 
waukee, anil brought them all back here 
to their place of stalling, yesterday fore- 
noon. The railroad company paid the 
expenses of the pasjengers at the differ- 
ent farm-houses where they had been 
stopping, and have also been boarding 
them here since the} came ba k, with the 
intention of sending them on to their place

I have often asked for a reform ol this 
wretched Indian sy.->tc-ni which has thwart- 
ed the generous intentions ol the Govern- 
ment, dragged every Indian tribe to the 
grave, and always brought to our doors 
a bittvr harvest of sorrow and of blood. 
1 h.ul hoped that some one wiser and bet- 
ter than myself would mark out the pre- 
cise steps of reform. 15ut I cannot be 
longer ."iilent. These questions cannot 
be buried. The two advancing waves of 
civilization from the Atlantic and Pacihc 
are .soon to meet. The Indian's wrongs 
will now be righted or else, whii.h God 
forfiid, this nation will hear such a wad 
of agony Iroin the horrors of Indian war 
we have never heard. Savage men 



nil 



as 

wliose feet f.ie by an open grave will re 
quite an awful vengeance, .and it will fall 
where it has alway.s fallen — on the inno- 
cent people of the border. 

These men of hard thorny hands who 
go out to subdue the wilderness have the 
right to demand protection lor their wives 
and babes. I ask all men who love jus- 
tice and fear God to listen calmly to what 
1 sav, and may God touch their hearts to 
redress every wrong. 

iiiE Tui:.vriES. 
The Indians who sell us their hunting 
grounds must eilher become civilized or 
perish. _ The treaties ought to be fVamed 
to secure their civilizadon. Justice, hu- 
manity, lear of God, love of self, every 
motive pleads that they who are sent on 
this errand should be men who have 
hearts, who believe in God and are 
ashamed to steal. It sickens one to think 
ol what does take place when treaties are 
made. The parties to them are a Chri-^- 
lian nation and a htathan people. An 
Indian treaty usually has but one end, 
that end is lo put money in some white 
man's pocket. The Imlian is told ot his 
great Father's pity and love for red meii, 
of his desire to see them made like their 
white brothers, that he has no ir.ouses, 
lire canoes, or lire horses, that he knows 
not bow to cultivate the soil, that he has 
no .'••cliools, nor books, nor teachers, nor 
knowledge of God. that all these and 
many more lilessings will come to him 
and his children if he will not turn a deaf 
ear to his great father's words. He be- 
lieves the lying fable, lie knows not how 
this is to be accomplislied, but he tru.'-ts 
the .smooth word.-;. lie cannot read and 
so supposes that all this is .n the bond. 
Often there are lying codicils added or 
f.vlse interpretations given to absorb large 
sums of money i>v special claims, always 
provided such claimants will pay a liberal 
commission to secure them. 

riie treaty is ratified. Then comes 
d ferred hopes the iriiiation of the pil- 
leriiii; ol annuity goods, the s(pianderiiig 
of money by fraudulent contracts, the 
theft of annuities, then diseases which 
follow vi-e begin to hold a carnival in 



tT-ry 



village; there is no government 
or law to protect person property or life. 
The dea<lly fire-water changes the savage 
to a devil. When he has oiily a choice 
of deaths, these long pent up passions 
burst out in the horrors of a massacre. 

The Indian treaty is now the surest 
way lo the publie treasury. The traders 
and duels whom they can bribe, ask lor 
it ; the Agents and Departments find it 
in their interest, and cunning politicians 
who never act unless their palms are 
crossed with silver, know how to use all 
the>e I'ur jiersonal ends. There should 
be no oilers made or inducements used to 
the !m '^ -ns t-\cept ^uch as the govern- 
ment will -^ce lioiiestly aal fauIifnUy ful- 
filled. The poiicy of Lrlbiug cl.icis must 
be stopped. The treaty should not rec- 
ognize a wandering savage tribe as an 
independent nation, it must be no more 
and no less than the simple clear state- 
ment of th" plighted faith of a Chriitian 
nation to its Indian wards. 



THE INDIAN SYSTKM MUST BE ClIAXC.r.U. 

It is now a system of reward for politi- 
cal lavorites. 'J'he Superintendent and 
Agents are generally selected by their 
Congressional patron as a reward for the 
service done in his own election. The 
case is so plain that no man can secure 
such an oliice, no matter how high his 
character, unless as a reward for party 
service. The agent usually appoints his 
subordinates from the .same motives, and 
even if he desired to do his whole duty 
he could not resist the outside political 
pressure, and he must obey party man- 
dates or lose his place. Under a wise 
system of government such appointments 
would be mischievous, but they work far 
greater evils under the present Indian 
system. 
Tin; KiiisT refop:>i kkquisite is a tiOV- 

tUXMKNT. 

The popular idea is that the Indian's 
tribal relations furnish him a patriarchal 
government of which the chief is the bead. 
But in fact the chief Las no power to 
make or execute law. He cannot pro- 
tect the innocent or punish the guilty. 
The otiicc of chieftain is only advisory 
and the law of redress is savage ven- 
geance. The Indian may see his wife or 
child killed his house may be torn down, 
his crops destroyed ; he has no remedy 
but revenge. The government of the 
United States never interferes, and so 



laws must be few and simple, yet such as 
fully protect property, person and life. 
A« tlie Indian reservation is beyond the 
jurisdiction of the Slate and the cases 
which would arise such as require 
a knowledge of Indian character, there 
must be a resident governor with jtidi- 
ciiil powers who shall reside at each res- 
ervation, lii JuiisL L-f i 1 all respects a 
man eminenTly fitl- ' fjrhis place. The 
agents, iarmers, mechanics, teachers and 
employees must act under his di- 
rection and he have the right 
to examine all purchases, contracts, 
and dealings of whatever kind, with or 
lor the Indians. As the stipendary mag- 
istrate of the government he must have a 
smal. body ol troops residing on the res- 
ervation who shall act under his direcian 
as the poliee to arrest and punish crime. 
There will be some dilliculty in inaugur- 
ating this system on account of the evils 
of the i)resent system, but whenever the 
Indians learn that the new system has 
the support of the general government 
they will at once approve it on account of 
the security which it gives to persons, 
property and life; as a fact all those who 
desire to live as civilized men are now in 
favor of it. No one can conceive of the 
constant fear un<ler which the Indian lives. 
I can count up more than a score of mur- 
ders which have been committed almost 
under my eye during my visits to the In- 
dian country. I have often known those 
who honestly commenced a civilized life, 
utterly disheartened by the destruction ol 
their crops, the killingof their cattle, and 
the loss of every reward for their toil. 
No white man would labor unless he ha<l 
guarantee that he should reap the harvest 
which he sowed. 

GOVERX.MEXT IXKI-T'EXCE OX TIIK SIDE 
Of I.AIIOU. 

The next step must be to place the in- 
fluence of the government on the side of 
labor. History enfores the teaching of 
God's holy word that man must live by 
the sweat of his brow. Instead of idling 
his time away begrimed with pahit which 
the Department has furnished, or engag- 
ed in heathen dances with government 
tomahawks and scalping knives, he must 
be taught to work. He must gain that 
manhood which comes from the possession 
of something he calls his own. 

The Indian reservation instead of being 
as it now IS, the property of the tribe, 
over no part of which can the individual 
claim a right to the soil, should be sur- 
veyed and each household given a piece 
of eighty acres of land, which should be 
inalienable ai-id whenever the young man 
marries and settles in life he also should 
receive a piece of land as his own. The 
Department under proper restrictions 
must aid him to build a house, furnish 
him with seed, implements of husbandry 
and break up his land until he is able to 
do so for himself. With proper reward 
to those who show industry and frugality, 
it would not be long before the whole 
tribe would feel the good intluence of the 
new system. 

THE rUESEXT VICIOU.S SYSTEM OF TRADE 
Mt'ST KE AHAXDOXEP. 

So long as the Indian has no relations 
with the Government, the trade is foun- 
de«l in mutual good will. The Indian 
looks to his trader for the outfit for his 
hunts, and the trader dare not oppress the 
Indian, lest he lose his debt. The Gov- 
ernment now offers a premium upon dis- 
honesty. The trader goes into the Indian 
country, by the authority of the Govern- 
ment. He sells goods to A, B, C, D, 
and F. A, B, C, and D, catch furs and 
pay their debts. F sells the furs he has 
taken to the nearest whisky sel'er. If he 
were dealing with white men, the trader 
would charge his bad debt to profit and 
loss. Not so, in the Indian county ; he 
understands that the time will come when 
these Indians are to be removed Ko 
matter if they live on a" reservation pledg- 
ed to them as their home forever; he 
knows full well that if that home is any- 
where in the path of civilization — it it be 
anywhere that white men may covet it — 
no plea of justice, nor humanity, nor 
self respect, nor fear of God, will save 
the Indian for an hour. Whenever the 
new trea'y is made, he and every other 
trader will add up every bad debt of 
themselves and fathers, and it will be al- 
lowed as a claim against the patrimony of 
the tribe. 

The history of Indian claims is one to 
make an American blush lor shame. It 
is the outside pressure of traders' attor- 
neys, commissioners who make our Indian 
treaties — and it leaves as it did on the 
Sioux a deep, bitter feeling of resentment, 
to be nursed in revengeful passions, until 
the pretext came for another reckoning ol 
blood. 

The trader who is permitted to reside 
on the reservation should be brought un- 
der some regulations like post sutlers in 
the military service. The tariff of prices 
should be affixed by the Governor of the 
Indians or by some proper board. Hit 
is necessary to protect our soldi rs at re- 
mote posts from extortion, the necessity 
is much greater in behalf of our heatheu 
wards, who can neither read nor write, 
and who know little of commercial values. 
The present practice of paying the debts 
of the vicious and indolent out of the pat- 
rimony of the whole nation opens the 
door to fraud and robbery, and at the 
same time pays a premium upon laziness 
and dishonestv. 



such matters as concern the welfare of 
the Indians. The only compensatior they 
shall receive shall be a sum suilicient to 
defray their traveling expenses. 

In this brief outline ol necessary re- 
forms, I have no preference for any plan 
of my own, I will welcome any plan

life. In 

ing of the same elements of savage hate 
for a more fearlul harvest of blood. For 
these border friends — for the heathen red 
men, for our blessed Saviour's sake, who 
for them and us hung on the cross — I 
pray that nothing may longer prevent the 
lullillment of our duty to our heatheu 
wards. 

I cannot close this appeal without call- 
ing public attention to the sad condition 
oflhe friendly Sioux and Winnebagoes. 
During the late massacres there were 
Indians who proved faithful to us, at the 
risk of life. Taopi, a chief who is heie 
at Faribault, has a certificate from Gen. 
Mbley, commending him for his fidelity, 
and certifying that he was the means of 
rescuing our white captives. He was liv- 
ing as a civilized man, on his farm, at the 
Agency, He lost everything. He has 
no resource for himself or family, but 
charitv ; and there are many others, both 
of the' upper and lower Siou.x, equally 
faithful, in the same sad case. They have 
no means to live as civilized men ; and 
they dare not hunt, for fear of being kill- 
ed by some white man who is ignorant of 
their character. ( >f those removed to the 
Upper Missouri, there is not one who 
was not acquitted by the Military Com- 
mission, and many of them were faithh.! 
and true. Every motive of gr.atitude de- 
manded for these men proper protection. 
Thev were taken to the Upper Alissouri, 
placed in a country so i>oor that it is im- 
possible for them to live, unless the Gov- 
ernment feeds them. IMany cf these 
friendly Sioux were christians. They 
I proved their faithfulness to their holy re- 
ligion, under the most trying circumi^tan- 
ces. They had the right to our protec- 
tion and care. The Winnebagoes lived 
within our borders. The justly e.xcited 
state of our people, and the imminent 
danger which grew out of our Indian sys- 
tem° matie it prudent that these men 
should be removed. But as no guilt was 
fastened upon them, it was due to justice 
and humanity that we should not drive 
them from a reservation pledged to them 
hv the good faith of our (Joverninent. 
These questions, growing out of the ne- 
cessity of their removal, could have read- 
ily been arranged by negotiation. They 
should have receivetl a home e(jually val- 
uable, and as well adapted to their sup- 
port. They had no option ; they were 
forciblv removed, with the Sioux, to a 
country which all who have seen agree is so 
poor that it is only a (question of time 
when they shall sink into a grave. 

I have been informed that nearly one- 
fourth of the whole number of Indians 
removed have died from starvation or dis- 
ease, and yet we wonder why we have In- 
dian wars'. The Government owes to 
itself, to the protection of the border, and 
the peace of the tribes beyond, that this 
injustice shall be redressed 

In making this appeal I am aware that 
I may touch the (juick of some men's 
heart. It may be supposed that I wish 
to assail the olTuials of the present Indi- 
an system ; or that I have a morbid sym- 
paty for these heathens. God is my wit- 
ness that I have no other motive than to 
reform a system all men admit to be per 
nicious and wrong. I have always thought 
that most of these evils grew out of the 
system, and that it w.is impossible for

THE SCHOOLS. 

There must be a carefully matured ed- 
ucational system. It must be such as is 
designed to lead a heathen race to the 
light of Christian civilization. The end 
in view ishould be not merely to teach 
them the routine of reading a few words 
in English, which they do not understand, 
but to teach them with this, those indus- 
trial pursuits which will prepare 
them to live as civilized men and 
women. The teachers should be 
men and women of deep-rooted christian 
principle, of warm hearts ; those who 
would feel it a pleasure to work for the 
elevation of the human race. Where 
there is a missionary school of high or- 
der, it would be proper for the mission- 
ary to draw a specified sura from the com- 
mon school fund, according to the num- 
ber of children in his care. The employ- 
long has this evil been permitted that our '■ ces must be persons of high moral char- 
people regard a scalp dance as a savage [ acter — no trader, agent, or employee, or 
pafitinic and go to it as a show. They ' clerk, or any other person, (missionaries 
have killed each other in our streets, ' excepted,) should be allowed to live on a 
iought beside our villages and wc have rescrvatiun, or be in the Government 
asked no more (luestions than if they were employ, unless he has a lawful wife, 
swine. Even wrong done thorn by white Thi-y must be better than so many pen- 
men goes unpunished. An Indian woman sioners, fed at the public crib. All sala- 
died under the hands of brutal violence ries should be ample for a prudent sup- 
in a village in this State and no man port, and no oHieer should be subject to ___ 

raised his hands to arrest the guilty. The removal, except for misconduct or neg- 1 from that command. A black cavalry regi 
onlv veEtige of law is where we pav a lect of their duties. I meat is now recruiting in 



to the 
fidelity of some Government employees ; 
but they have failed signally, because 
the system was stronger th.an their per- 
sonal fclTortg. 

The welfare and safety of all our pio- 
neer settlers is bound up in this question, 
and it is cruelty 'o an innocent an<l de- 
fenceless border population, to leave 
them unprote^-tcd, subject to the Indian 
massacre which our present system is 
sure to excite. Conscious of the recti- 
tude of my own motives, I have cheerful- 
ly borne the unjust imputations cast upon 
me. It was easier to meet the excited 
prejudices of the people th.in to violate 
my own conscience and breast the anger 

ol God.

A Speech by Secuetary Stantox. — 
On Christmas Day, Mr. Stanton visited 
the soldiers in Stanton Hospital, Wash- 
ington, and made them a brief speech 
He said : Soldiers, 1 hope that when the 
next anniversary of the day you are now 
celebrating occurs, that this war will be 
ended, and you will have returned to 
your homes and your firesides. W'feen 
you shall have so' returned, you will be 
considered as honored guests of the na- 
tion. You have periled your lives on the 
battlefield, or you have suffered in camp 
from the ravages of disease incidental 
to great armies. But whether you have 
been wounded or been attacked by sick- 
ness, you are equally entitled to consid- 
eration at the hands of you country. If 
you have been wounded in battle, or suf- 
fer from sickness contracted in the ser- 
vice of youf country, I will see that j ou 
have a proper reward given you. 

Soldiers : If we can end this rebellion 
with the extinction of slavery, will it not 
be a great triumph ? You will, at the 
end of this great rebelliop, when niaking 
a review of it, have the satisfaction of 
knowing that you have aided the Gov;|rn- 
ment of the United States in discharging 
the duties incumbent on that Govern- 
ment when it sras in peril. And further- 
more, you will experience the feeling that 
you have materially aided to make the 
country frQe. [Applause.] 

Senator Wilson also made a few re- 
marks which were well received.

been grown merely l\.r the seed. The next 
filing told, and ealeidated to imrease the as-

fected th:it -his same llax straw might be tak- 
en, cleaned and prepared ready for admix- 
ture with c<.tton or wool, at a cost of only 
clercn c-iitsper pound— cotton beini- sixty to 
sov. nty cents. This is no C'himeni, it is an 
aceoniplished fact. The liberi/.ed materi-.il is 
on exhibition ar the Department of Agricul- 
ture ; the cost of prei-aration and the moJe 
are all put di.wn in lioncst, straight.foiward 
lignres. Tlicrc too is sbown cloth woven by 
the cicar ll.iX. It is mixc d with wool, and knit 
int > stockings; in a word, it is cottoni:ed,Mi'\ 
th:it, too, at a tost which puts it Iwlow the

The Ice Bouxd Steameus.— Pcavy, 

a photographer at McGregor, Iowa, has taken 
three unusually excellent pictures of the 
stCAiners Keokuk and Favorite, as they aie 
icc-lockcd in the river (^posite that city. The 
jiictures make the "white collars" of the 
smoke stacks look as familiar, while every 
rail, cord, line and stay stands out as plain as 

life. 

The design is to represent where the heats 
lay. The Keokuk is about three hundred 
yards from shore, and about live hundred 
from the McGregor Landing. The Favorite 
has since been got out. The rough ice about 
the Kcokiik leads us t^ think that winter has 
hu-ged things close in that vicinity. These 
boats Ijelonged to the St. Paul and LaCrossc 
lino last season, and were on their way South 

when froze i::. 

««»- 

Better ihax Kii-uoads. — We al- 
ways ;a:d that Durbank's La Crosse line was 
Jictter tlian a railroad, and the late stormy 
weaiher proves it true. While the L:i Crosijc 
Railro.al did n )t run for five days owing to 
snow and cold, Burbank's Stages left on tiuic 
and arrived on time the whole week. The 
register at the Tost Offi-e shows that not a 
stage on all his lines have missed a trip, or 
been behind time through the entire cold snap. 

When the Eastern mails fail, therefore, it 
mu«t be attributed to the non-an'i\'»l of the 
iniiil at La Crosse, and not to any failure of 
the Burbank line. Such a thing never occurs. 



A HORRIBLE STORY. 

for Tweittjr 



An Idiot's 



fliutr«'rinsr» 
Years. 



The Com> Weather.— The only way 
to be comfortable in cold weather is to keep 
warm. This is easily done in day time, but 
not so easy at night. Ever)- one will rejoice 
to learn, therefore, that R. O. Strong of the 
Carpet Store in llogers Block, has just rcceiT 
cd a hngc supply of fcither beds, comforters, 
l)laiikets and such articles. There's no ex- 
cuse now for freezing to death in I)ed. Go to 
Strong's and yet some comforters and feather 
ijcds : 



There have been no cases before U. 
S. Commissioner Cardozo all this week, for 
eva.-ion of the Uevenuc law. Canlozo puts 
delinquents through so unmercifully that 
thev all i»ay up now, in time. He says he 
wi-hes it was optional with him to inllict the 
tlcath penalty for such olfences— the hanging 
of some iwor Arab alx>ut once a week would 
1)0 salutary. No doubt. 



The following horrii)le story appears 
in the Londoii Times ; it is from th« pen 
of Mr. Sidney Hodges, Secretary of the 
Roval Cornwall Polytechnic Society : 

For sonic year;? past riuuors have been 
cnrrent that tiie brother ol a mason 
named Porter, living in comfortable cir- 
cumstances at Flusliing, had been kept 
for many years in clo.^e confinement in a 
small room at the back of the premises 
in which Porter and his family reside. 
Heart-rending cries and howls have been 
repeatedly heard by the neigiibors, es- 
pecially on cold nights; but, although 
the sympathy of many was roused, no 
one «leeuied "il his duty to inquire into 
tlie circiiinstaiics of the ca^e, not dream- 
ing, probably, of the horrors that were 
to be revealed. 

Hatlurmore than a year ago Dr. IJyrne 
a well-kiiown medical practioner from the 
couiitrv of Durham, now residing in thi> 
town, 'was compelled to seek the warm 
climate of ^ lushing lor his health, and in- 
cidcntallv heard these runiors. ISot sat- 
i.stied to allow the matter to remain unin- 
vestigated, he collected all the evidence 
lie could, and was so satisfied that the 
ca>e wasone<lemanding a strict inquiry 
that he eommunieatcd the facts to the 
Home Secretary, who at once appointed 
hitn special commissioner, and sent down 
two other commissioners, who, in com- 
pany with Dr. liyrne, went to Porter's 
house on 'Iliursd-iy last and demanded 
admission to his brother. Porter him- 
mK was absent; but, after some little 
parlev with the other inmates. Dr. Byrne, 
who h.".d obtained some insight into the 
jdan of the premises, led the way through 
the house across a yard and up a flight oi 
steps, where, concealed from view round 
a corner, thev found a door, which ad- 
mitted them 'to the den in which the lu- 
natic was confined. 

' The sight which met their gaze was 
too revolting to be described with all its 
horrid details. The i>lace consi^ated ol 
four bare, wet, plaster walls, with a small 
window on one side, and the door by 
which thev had entered ; a doorway op- 
posite, formerly communicating with the 
house, v/as plastered up, so as to cut oil 
all communication except by the flight of 
stejis at the back. In one corner of the 
room was a wretched truckle bcdslead, 
with cross pieces of wood, rotten with 
lilih, about six inchea wide and the same 
distance apart. On these bare boards 
he<l a being more resembling a 
baboon than a 

from long exposure and siiireriiig, out oi 
all form of humanity, stark naked, and 
with onlv two old rotten bags for a cov- 
erlet, i have said like a baboon, from 
the peculiar form into which the limbs 
were drawn ; the knees almost touched 
the chin, and were pressed close down 
upon the clicst, 1 imagine for warmth ; the 
feet close together and bent down one 
over the other,also I imagine for warmth ; 
the hands clinched and brought up close 
to the chin; the arms closely ])ressed 
against the sides. The knee and hip 
joints were also stiironing. The iloor 
and the Avails were one mass of 
accumulated filth, the floor was rotten 
with it, the stench horrible ; and there 
are other circumstances of the case too 
dreadful for publication. 

For upward of twenty years the tender 
mercies of his nearest relatives have con- 
signed him to this livmg tomb — not a rag 
tcTlie upon, not even a wisp of straw; 
nothing but the naked board, and the two 
old bags to cover him. Would a raving 
maniac be cpnsigned to such a doom ? 
God forbid. \Mut, let us ask, is the 
mental condition of this poor wretch? 
Simply imbecile. A most mild, benevo- 
lent expression of countenance, a child- 
like submission to all that is done to him, 
no symptoms of violence or even anger 
of any kind, and strong indications of in-

Found FiiOZKX to Death.— It is re- 
potted on reliable authority that two Germans 
who went out from New Ulm a few days ago 
to hunt, were found frozen to death in their 
tent on the Cottonwood river, on the 3d inst. 
It was supposed tha: they did not understand • . on • 

wood-crafc well, and had not a supply of fuel ^^^^^^^^ jjj'.^jj "../ma,,, drawn and cramped, 
and clothing on hand. Sleeping in a tent 
with insufficient clothing and no means of 
Ituildins a tire, in mid-winter, is somewhat 

hazardous.

after these weary years of neglect and 
cruelty. On Sunday, in company with 
Dr. Byrne and some friends, I vi.>itcd the 
poor creature for the purpose of gotling 
a sketch of the remarkable position in 
which he ha<l remained for so many ye.irs. 
The arrangements being then completed, 
two intelligent keepers from the county 
asvlum washed, dressed, and took him 
avvay to th.at admirably conducted estab- 
lishment at Bodmin, where we fervently 
hope that both his mental and bodily con- 
dition may soon be impioved. 

Ol all the moving incidents of the case, 
not the least was the scene on emerging 
from the house. Many hundreds of peo- 
ple were collected round the conveyance, 
to which the keeper carried him in his 
arms like a child. "My God ! can that 
be a man?"' "God bless you. Dr. 
Byrne ! " was the exclamations that burst 
from the lips of the multitude. Few eyes 
were drv, especially when some who had 
known 'him when a strong intelligent 
youth pressed forward and shook him by 
"the hand. I am told the Commissioners 
stated that in an experience of forty years 
they had never met with a case so awful.

A TouchiDg- Sitory. 

The Providence papers teU the foUow- 
inf storv ot Mr. James G. Haskell, a na- 
tive of Pawtucket, near sixty years of age, 
who has recently arrived from Graves 
county, Kentucky, about thirty-five miles 
from Paducah, where he has been forced 
to leave a valuable farJ" "" ''SO acres, and 
a comfortable home liequence of 

his Union sentiments : 

Deserted l»y wife and family, who are 
strongly in symp.ithy with the rebels save a 
dausrhter who resided in Missouri, and whose 
husiiand, by the ntimc of Taylor, was killed 
by guerrillas more than a year ago; a son in 
the rebel army, who was taken prisoner at 
Fort Donclsitn and carried to Chicago, and 
upon his exchange again re-cnlistcd, w;!S, as 
Mr. H. supposed, killed .-it the biutle of Chat- 
tanooga; annoyed by guerrilla bands until 
his subsistence had been taken from him, and 
he in commcm « itli his neighbors had been 
forced to seek jtrotcction under the Federal 
guns at Paducah ; these aie a few nf the many 
sufferings this loyal patriot has been called 
to endure, until he has at last found rest upon 
the hillside of his youth. 

In the recent rebel raid several of Mr. Has- 
kell's neighbors were murdered, as he has 
learned by letters from home. His farm is 
still occupied by his family, all of whom are 
.<:ccesh. Strange as it may seem, the difference 
in political sentiment between himself and his 
wife and daughters has never causca any in- 
terruption in dimiestic harmony. In the let- 
ters reeentlv received from his wife, she con- 
gratulates him on his being absent from home 
during the i»i ogress of the late raid, and says 
his life would not liave l)een spared by the 
rebels if they had found liim.

— There is an old female contraband 
following the army of the Potomac, wlio has 
the reputation of being half crazed. Shore- 
peats the following dogcrel verse : 
"In sixtv-one, the war begiin ; 

In sixty-two, it was half through ; 

In sixtv-thrce, the niggers were free ; 

In sixty-tour, the war will be o'er." 
It is more lian probable that the darkey's pre- 
diction will prove correct.

SAIN-l' PAUL, SUNDAY, JAN. 10^ _ 



S^INT PAUL, SUNDAY. JANUARY lO. 1864. 



^Vc pubUshcd yesterday a list of the mem- 
bers and omccrs of the State Legislature, giv- 
ing the name uf each, his eounty, post office 
address occupation, a.iie, nativity, the date of 
his sotllenient in Minnesota, and v.hcther mar- 
ried or siiifflc, which will be transferred to the 
Legislative Manual. 

XATivirr, 
As last year we nsrain have to notice the 
fjct th;it amons? «ho mcnilxTs of the Legisla- 
ture there is n.»t a sin;.'le native of Minnesota, 
a fact which is sutVicici.tly indicative of tlie 
youth of our State. An analyMS of the na- 
tivitits of the members shows that twcuty-six 
arc truai the New England States, as ft)l- 
lows: Six Mom Maine; eight from New 
Il.imi.shirc; eisrht from Vermont; four from 
Mu«sachn?elt!5 ; one from Connecticut. 
Li^t year the New En2;landcr3 in the 
Legisl.uuie numbered thirty-four. Of 
the ,othor States New York gives the Legis- 
lature sixteen of its memi'crs; Pennsylvani i, 
six; Ci.ii. 4; Illirois, G; Maryknd. 1; North 
Caroi:na;l ; Ireland, 4 ; Germany, 1 ; Nova Sco- 
tia, 1 ; Canad:!, 1, amd Knijland one. The 
New r.ngiand element, which is but eleven 
per cent. f;f our populition, is forty per cent, 
of the Legislature; last yc;'.r it was fifty-. our 
P'r cent., a significant illustration of the go- 
aheadativcn.-'-s which makes the Yankee, by 
hook or crook, the rnlmg element in ever}' 
community where he finds a foothold. The 
State ..f New Y rk, whose sons < onstittitc thir- 
teen per cent, ot our population, gives the 
l.egislaturc twenty-live per cent, of its mem- 
bers. New York and New England, together, 
would make a two-thirds vote of a joint con- 
vention of the two houses. 

SKTTI.EMV.Xr IX MINNESOTA. 

This year, as last, more than half the mem- 
bers of the Legislature emigrated to Minneso- 
ta in ihe years lS.5o, IS-JG and 1SJ7, which was 
the pcri'Hl of the greatest emigration to this 
St ite. Two came to the State or Territory in 
ISn. one in LSIO, one in IS-JO, two in 1851. one 
in 18>2, three in 18-5.3, live in IS-H, eleven in 
1S.>5, eleven in lS-'»r., twelve in 18.37, four in 
18.3'^, three in ISoO and one in ISGl. lion- 
Jchn McKnsi.k, who came to the State in 
1S40, is the oldest resident of the State. 

CCCl I'ATIONS. 

Twenty-«-even of the members are farmers ; 
thirteen arc lawyers; nine are merchants ; 
thr. are lumber dealers ; two are hotel-keep- 
ers; one is a tanner; one a physician; one a 
builder ; one a railroad president. 

A(SK. 

The average age of the members is much 
greater than that of any previous Legislature 
in this State. 

Fifty of the sixty-three members arc over 
thirty-live years of age— l)e!onging thns to the 
second class of enrolled men. Of the remain- 
der only thrve are lesi than thirty years old. 
The youngest member is Mr. I. L. Gibhs ot 
Frecl.orn, who i* twenty-five years old. The 
oldest are Messrs. Daniels, Langley ami Por- 
ter, who have each reached the respectable age 
of fifty-four years. 

COXDITIOX. 

Fifty-three of the members are in the en- 

jovment of connubial bliss. Three widowers 
mourn departed joys, and seven bachelors are 
•waiting for the good time coming.

"We remit to the Legislature now in 
session the iroporiant d .ty of furnisliing 
a practical answer to the inte!roc;at< ries 
addressed to us by "an enlisted man of 
the First ^Unnesota volunteers." Ccn- 
siilering that, as our veteran shows by 
official documents, while Connecticut and 
Massachusetts are paying the o(iuivaknt 
of Bo-Jo or more in' cash, and other Status 
or snbdivisions are paying all the way 
from $200 to B'>00 bounties to veteran 
volunteers— 3/j««eso/a pai/s no State 
bou nly, and the counties and cities don't 
pav much more. Considering these 
things, gentlemen, "what good reason 
can you give" our veteran correspond- 
ent "why a veteran of the First Minneso- 
ta, feeling it his duty to serve his coun- 
try until the war is over, should not 
proceed to Vermont or Xew Jersey, for 
instance, and re enlist there?" The 
question is one of startling import to the 
honor of this State, and we commend it, 
gentlemen, to your prompt and earnest 
consideration :

The enlisted men of this Regiment being 
deeply interested in the foregoing documents, 
I wish to ascertain certain facts through your 
columns, which I feel entirely at liberty to 
ask, seeing from Eastern papers, that the 
same method is practiced all over the land. 

1. Supposing that the inducements held out 
for volunteering, in the State of Minnesota 



will consist (f county and city scrip, what is 
their aggregate value in gold, silver or green- 
backs ? 

2. What good reason can you give, why a 
veteran of the First Rcsimcnt Minncsoti Vol- 
unteers, feeling it his duty to serve his country 
until the war is over, should not proceed to 
Vermont or New Jersey for instance, and re- 
cnlist there ? 

Hoping that you will give publicity to the 
above, and answer the questions through 
columns, I am Sir, 

Very Respectfully,

TERllIBIE EFFECTS OF 
THE GREAT STORM. 



Up On tlM- rrairle. 



Thril.ing Account of the Suffer- 
ings and Rescue of the 
Passengers. 



Al.L. 

The Illustrated Sporting Xews, {llngMsl),) 
has the following in relation to the fight be- 
tween King and ilcenau : 

"On the IStli round King was tl-.rown so 
heavily it was thought he was out of time, an.l 
it took his seconds some time before th*y 
could get him round again ;" nnd it acids : 

[Here the Kin?tes broke into the rnig. and 



the remainder of the fiu'ht w^.s earned on amu 
much disorder. In the confusion wo unssed 
the two succeeding rounds, but tliey were 
vcrv short and in favor of Hcenan. Ivini; 
«om recovired, and immediately afterward 
turned the tide of fortune in his favor, I lee- 
nan rapidly and suddenly getting weak.] 

This account resumes on the 21st roun | 
The Sporting I-ife describes King as throv.n 
heavily and unconscious, and that "it re<iuir- 
ed all the skill and attention of his secomLs to 
I)ring nim to anything like a sense of his \Hm- 
tijii." Then it describes the rush of the 
Kingites, and says: '-This, as a matter of 
course, atfordcd our Tom an interval of rest." 
The Cincinnati iiazette comments on these 
facts as follows : 

From all this it wiU be cathercd that in this 
affair lleenan \\.\<\ a secfind experience of the 
boasted Kn','li-h love of fair play; an.l that, 
as .It Farnl)orough, he had to beat not only 
the ch-impi.m, but the crowd, who wer^^.d*^" 
termiued that the award should not be given 
to;;n American. It is plainly sliowii that 
Kuig was unable to come to time, and that by 
the rules of the ihig lleenan was tiie winner. 
But the crowd rushed in, and, by a nicely ar- 
ranged and pnitracted disorder gave their 
man lime to conic to. What other foul play 
lleenan sn'.fercd in this rush is not reveaUnl ; 
but it was not strange that here, as in his right 
(vlth .Savers, when his opponent could not 
come to time, and the veferees would not 
make a decision, and the erowd would not let 
the tiitht be finished, he should have grown 
wild and incautious. It was too much to ex- 
pect of human pluck that it should continue 
with the same spirit a struggle against a pre- 
determined conclusion.

In our Chicago exchanf.a's which reach- 
ed us last evening, we Had lenghty ac- 
counts of the gieat storm which raged on 
the first of the month, rroin the Chica- 
go reporters a«.'Counts, and from the pub-

compik-d the following thrilling descrip-

by passengers on th- Mit.-hi^?an rVnlrai

morning Deeeuibcr olst, and succeeded 
in reaching Chicago Saturday cvcniaj:

RosECRAJN.s' official report of the battle 
of Chickamanga has just been published. 
We have room for but a single paragraph 

this morning : 

We expended 2,G.>0,000 rounds of musket 
cartridges, and 7,32.5 of cannon ammunition, 
bcimr 12,67.5 rounds less of artillery and 6 >G,- 
000 rounds more of musketry, than at Stone

From the report of I.ieut. Col. W ilcs. Pro-

that, while there is the lamtest h«>i>c ot avert 
ing it, the weakest arms are nerved witu gi 
ant's strength, and the faintest hearts with t u 
bravest resolution. One by one, out into tin 
blinding storm went those who were ai>.e,au.. 
digging down through the mi>w dri:ts which 
were piled ovtrtlum, they tore up the k■llc.•^ 
near the roa.l and brouuht them as luel to tin 
car*. Here was something which would pro 
vide' warmth until they could be rescued iron; 
their perilous situation. The boards wen 
broken up and the fast-cooling stoves s )0! 
iiavcouta generous heat. 'Ihe wind as it 
rushed along drew the llaines up through tin 
kindling pine, until stove and pipe were heat 
ed red. Then a new i-eril broke upon t.u 
"a-isen^'cr-s. The roof of tlic car took lire fron 
The heated pipe, and, as the win<l caught th. 
(lime-s they roared and crackled and curied 
towards the passengers as if in ninck.ry oi 
their miserv.s 'Ihe snow was banked ai- 
luostto thebottomof the car, ami t > te)>u- 
atc it from others bv hand was an utter im- 
l>ossibilitv. If the liaines once got fairly un 
der way the whole train would be consume.: 
and itsliving freiuht turned out.m that bleak 
prairie without shelter, and at the utter merc> 
of the pitiless storm. That were certa n 
death. In this m.imcnt of )>eril the women 
vied with the men in theiretibrts for the co!ii 
mon safttv. More than one la'r h md now 
eag.rly gr.'ispcd the glittering sn nv.am-meiH 
))etbre rcirai.h.l as their greatest peril, an., 
hailed it as the angel of thei.- deliveran.e. 
.Some of the men wi h hatches immntcd tin 
top of the car and comnience.l ciittii;- 
iswav the portion on fire; ..ther men .nnd -he 
brave women carrinl snow and dashed it from 
the outside and from the iii>ide upon th< 
burning roof. At lirst it seemed as it all 
hope were vain, but energies were n.»t slack- 
ened or hearts unnerved. The c.mte.st was 
lirief but .ksperatc, ami resulted in the llames 
being quelicd. The wind and snow came 
rushini: in at the aperture in th:- roof, and th.' 
ear was no longer tenable. Ail 
the passsengers then vilidrew to the 
next one. Proper i)recanti(jns were 
taken against similar disaster th' re. Du; 
the ashes had been unfortunately removed 
from the stove in this car, and, when anti-i- 
patir.:: no danger, the floor of the car took hre 
from the bottom of the stove. It was inucli 
easier extingiii-ilud than the other, but not 
without considerable labor, or until a consiil- 
erable portion of the floor ha.l been cut away, 
an<l that car rendered untenable ai.so. 

The passengers of the entire train were now 
hnildled together in the only remaining car. 
It wasnownearlv twoo"ch>ck in the afti r- 
noon. and there were no signs of the storm 
abating or of anv deliverance reaching them. 
A seiis'e that terrible sutlerings and a horrible 
death awaited tlicm in the hours of darkness, 
now not far removed, was gaining ground 
anvm-'tiio pass, ngers, and one by .mc they 
sutrenil themselves to drift away into that 
state of listless in.iillercnce which ever char- 
acterizes men who are calmly awaiting a fate 

thev cannot avert. . ., i ■ *„ 

Suddenlv, however, they were startled into 
new hope'bv the arrival of a train of the 
Michig.in Soutlieni Kaihoad. It stopped at 
the erossinc of the two roads, only some four 
hundred vards distant, an.l its c 'udiicior 
si-Tiiti'd li"is readiness to take the passengers 
ot^thc Michiu'an Central train into the city. 
The work of transferring them was immcli- 
ately cominencnl,thc engine in the meantime 
moving the train slowly backwar.ls and tor- 
wards to prevent the snow from drifting 
around and under it. The distance between 
the two trains, nearly four hundred y.irds, 
was tilled with a drift neariy ten feet in 
depth, and to make the jiassage from one to 
the other was a work of great 1 :b:.r and diili- 
culty. The storm was at iis height and tlic 
cold so intense that the faces of the women 
ami children were frozen almost as soon as 
thev came in contact wih the wind— turning 
white as instantlv as if they had been plunged 
in boiling water. Scarcely any one made the 
passage from one train to the other without 
being badly frost-bitten, many quite seriously. 
Cold as it was m the car, th.ise who had not 



ow inf-irmcd him, befVccn his sobs, that his 
iiio'hcr had .startvd wi-h him fr.jin the other 
irain. Kighilv coiijcc.ur.ng that she must be 
somewheve near where he f.iuii.l the boy, he 
made his wav back a.i near as possible, to the 
-ame sp .r. Tlie wind was lillcd w.th i.art.clcs 
V snoA- which prvveni.-d any obje<t Irnm be- 
n" visible a; anv grcm distance, and the snow, 
ih-lvcn bv the wind in;0 the clothing, prevem- 
■d a i.ci-son fiom b-ing discernablc unless 
ni'tviii''. Near this ii]>ot lie found the mother 
who was straggling al-mg upon her hand- and 
tVet, feeling in" the sa->w tor her boy from 
whom she had bccoiV.o scparate.l by falling 
down. She w..s so nearly exnausted th d 
die could not have f.-'vcled many y.irds tiirth- 
r .iml would undou'' e.lly have perished but 
for Mr. Comstock's - .- .-•ly assisuncc. 
The rescned p.issc.gcrs, imincliitely np.m

A-ere made as comforablj as po-s'Lle. Those

ladies tearing up t'.ii' han.Iherehiefs and 
seirfs to rub the frozen feet, faces and han.l.s

cMtercd .iiVd thriiied all present w th the an- 
iiouiK-emciit— "1 am here with a team and 
[)n)vi.-.i..ns from the city. There .nre two more 
•c ims coming somewhere on the prairie, but 
t is getting .lark and they cannot fin.l the 
train in the Wiw of this .st.irm. I want men 
t ) build a fire in the rear of the cars as a be > 
cnn and signal for those team;." A ha! f score 
of iiKU >olnneered, whde exclamation vi 
surprise, a.lmir.ition and gratitude echoed 
from th.' heart of every i)erson who had 
thoui-'htfullv realized the danger we were in. 
The "fire w.is lighted, and alnnit ei-lit o'clock 
another team or tv9 came by its guidance to 
the comf..rt and relief ot tiie pas.-engers. 'Ihe 
sandwiches, cold chicken, turkey, duck, iS:c., 
&c., were quickly distrbutvd among the 
hungry ones, who atJ and wondered, and 
siientlV thankeilthe men wh.ohad thus braved 
the storm to give them aid and cheer. 

We learned that conductor Curtis and a Mr. 
Barnes had reached the city and given tidings 
of our condili on; that the f.rmer gentlem.;ii 
was badlv frzeii, and the latter hail returned 
to guide Messrs. Hough an.l Manchester, ot 
the Southern road, and otiiers to the train. 
Several teams started, l>nt <mly two cr three 
!iad reached the train ; and how any human 
being could live to ride in such a storm siiili 
a distance, and face it, was a matter of a.ston- 
ishment to all. The attempt of the tciims to 
return to the citv that night failed, we learned 
Saturdav nujrnmg. and two or three ladies, 
who started with them, v.erc bully frozen be- 
fore reaching shelter. Friday night was pass- 
ed in conioarativc comfort. But lew slept, I 
think. The fires were sufficient to warm the 
cars, an.l closely crowded in the seats, tm the 
floor, and on piles of fuel, we watched over the 
women and little ones, and waited for day 
to dawn. 

Toward morning the howiing of the wind 
ce.xse.l ; the snow ceased filtering in through 
the crevices, and the bright moon told us that 
the storm had spent its anger. There was joy 
among the passengers— a general waking up 
fallowed. Saturday morning came, with a 
further distribution of f.;od, and a vigilant 
lookout for some signs of help. About eight 
o'cl.ick an engine v.as seen approaching us 
from the cast "with a snow plow. Before ten 
o'clock it had reached us and hauled us back 
to the Junction, where we found two or three 
;tiicr trains wailing to go in. About twelve 
o'clock it was announced that slei-'hs 
from the ci y had arrived, charter- 
ed by the railroad comi).iny to 
convey such iiassengers as did not choose to 
wait for the road to be broken, to Ulich's Ho- 
tel. ThcsT were soon crowded, and after a 
tedious, cold ride, were safely set down at 
Ulich's, where the chilled and frozen received 
1 cverv attention from the hospitable proprie- 
I tors,' who refused toiective money for the 
' comforts provide.l. Such is the hasty record 
I of the way the old year closed and the new

jnan, being on Ins return home from 
France, by ibe South of Italy, from a 
tour through the southern part of Ku- 
ropo, took the (.pportunity to pny a long 
promi.sed visit to an uncle aneceleMiastie. 
Altl-.ou^h personally a stranger to hi.s rel- 
ative, his reception was full of kindness 
and <ordiaiitv, and so agreeably did the 
tune pa-^.s tiiat from dav to day he was 
incline<l to prolong hio visit. At length 
his dei>arture could no longer bo defer- 
red. Traveling at that time was a mat- 
ter of phy.Mcal difficulty. Tliere were 
no pui>lic conveyances ; the roads were 
so bad as to be sometimes impassable ; 
and the inns were execrable. The few 
travelers whom necessity, the love of 
knowledge, or tl:c marvelous, temi)lcd 
from home, perlornicd their journeys on 

horseb;ic!c, therefore, M..<le C must 

so travel. When he laid the prograumie 
of his route 1 efore his relative, the good 
man .>;hook his head. 

"You will scarce reach your first day s 
halt bv-fbre nightfall,*' said ho, "'ihe 
ro.id i-5 r.'it s:u'e; the forest tlirough 
whir-!) it jiasse-t is lonely, and notorious 
for the boldnes.s and cruelty of the ban- 
dits who inf.-t. it. To travel thr jugh U 
alone would bem.xdness ; in fict, I should 
consider myself responsible to your father 
it" I gave my sanction to such an arrang- 
raent.*' 

The itlcaof an adventure was, however, 
rather agreeable than otherwise to t!ie 
voung Iravtier— he assured his uncle 
that he h.ul no i'ears : that if attacked, he 
was able to defend himself ; and havuig 
alreadv prolonficd his absence beyond 
I'.ie lixe 1 Un-.c-, his father would bo grvally 
ai.>;api)OU»tc'l, and, however much he 
uu'.st regret IJ (piit liis uncle's hospitable 
roof, a sense ot duly urged him to ihlay 
no longer, liie abbe at length iinwill- 
inglv acceded lo his nephew's wishes, on 
condition that an old and trusty servant 
shcnid accompany liim. 

•'True it id long since Antonio cast cfi' 
thf uniform of a soldier,'' said the old 
gentleman, "but you may rely on his 
courage and pr'ulence." 

To this covalltion there could be no ob- 
jection, :ind accordingly, after having re- 
ceived the parting bl-ssing of his unch', 
the young man set out, well armed, aiid 
r-r.-ompanied by tli-.^ trusty Antonio. 
Noon was some hours past, when, still 
plodding through tangled forests, and 
llin.!igh dangerous ways, the travelers 
iound tl'.emselves, v.lih Loraes tired, and 
their distance from the tov/n, at whi-h 
thi-y were to make their first night's halt, 
still iinas;-ertaiued. For the first time it 
occurred to the young man that lis good 
uncle's aniicipation nsiglit possibly be- 
realiz'jd. Mile alter mile was passed, 
with increasing dilhciilty. 

The tall piiies seemed to close tlieway, 
r.o.v re<Uiced to a mere path. The only 
sound whl h at intervals ri-aehed tht ir 
ears, was that of the woodman's :»xe. To 
obtain refreshment for their horses, and 
shelter lor llieuiselves, beeann* every 
moment a matter of necessity. Hitherto 
there h.'id been no indication of abode or 
sh.lter of any kind, atid tlwy had :dmost 
despaired ol limiing shelter, when a 
blu:sii smoke was observed rising, at no 
great di;-fa:ice, in the cr.Im evi ni*"^ air,

M. de C- 



took counsel of Antonio 



who could only suggest that bad acomo- 
dation and miserable fare were, at all 
events, to bo preferred to an unecpial 
struirijle, iM a close bound forest, with an 
invi3;ble, but crui.*l and relentless enem}', 
who was seldom known to perpetrate 
the crime of robbery without adding to it 
that of murder. With disguised reluctance 
the young man relinquished his intention 
to proceed; so, after bestowing their 
first care on their horses, master and 
man returned to the house, resolv<;d to 
accept cheerfully what could not be 
avoided. 

The only doineslie who appeared was 
a girl, whose youthful anxious counte- 
nance naturally awakened a ft'eling of in- 
terest in the heart of the young traveler. 

" Ninetta, you will sliow this nolde 
gentleman to the Green Room," said her 
master. 

Up a rough and dirty staircase, M. de 
C &3I.1 Antonio followed the gen- 
tle guide, into a room with two comfort- 
less-looking bedsteads, the dingy cur- 
tains of which fell like palls around the 
beds. These, with a few chairs and an 
unplaned table, constituted the whole ot 
the furniture of the apartment. 

Here the girl left tlicm. The landlord 
was now heard to leave the house, and 
the girl returned to the room, where she 
busied herself in j»reparing the beds — ex- 
hibiting, however, a restlessness of man- 
ner, and an evident desire to attract the 
attention of the young cavalier, which 

could not be mistaken. M. de C 

a[)proached her. 



cepted. '1 he uanger must therefore be 
met wfierc liny ^--vc. Assuming the 
girl's story to be true, Antonio recom- 
mended that they should take the initia- 
tive, and not defer their defense to the 
night. He suggested that the men should 
be' admitted, and the seats so jdaced at 
the table that the most powerful of the 
band should be oi)posite to his young 
master — the two others on either side, 
and oppositeoneanother. That he should 
not leave the room on any pr.;tence what- 
ever : and that after he had placed the 
cheese upon the table with the desert, 
his master was to ask for a glass of wa- 
ter, when he should put his pistol into 
his hand, which he should at once dis- 
ch.artce at the man opposite to him. 

"For the others," said Antonio, 
" le.ave them to me." 

The landlord's foot was now heard on 
tiie stairs, and, entering the room, he 
apologized for his intrusion by stating 
that three travelers, old customers, who 
made a i)oint, journeying that way, to 
I)ass a night at liis unworthy house, and 
had just"arrived; that he ifras very un- 
willing to send them away, at such a time 
of nigiit, unrefreshed ; that he lamented 
to say that he had no other room with 
which to accommodate them, and prayed 
that his distinguished ^uest would permit 
the gentlemen to sup with him. Such 
condescension would render him forever 
grateful. 

The girl's story was but too faithfully 

corrrborated. M. de C could no 

longer dor.bt. The real nature^ of their 
posTtion became too apparent. The land- 
lord's request was granted. The supprr 
was placed on the table, and the tlirte 
travelers introduced. So forbidding was 
their aspecv, that, even without the pre- 
vious \varning. they must have ins{»ired 
mistrust. The chairs were occupied as 
Autonio had arranged. The meal pro- 
ceeded but could not boast of any social 
elements. 

One observed that the young cavalier did 
not cat; another discovered that he had 
left his snnfl-bo.x. below— might not the 
servant letch it ? Various clumsy expe- 
dients were tried, but in vain, to rid 
themselves of the presence of the stern- 
looking old soldier, which only tended to 
.-otilirm, in its full extent, ti;e prophetic 
warning of the young girl. The only re- 
ply wliii h .\ntonio condescended to make 
was to knock on the floor, that the laiiif- 
lord mijrht execute the wishes of his 
friends. 

No landlord, however, appeared: 
every action of the men tended to increase 
.pprehehsion, and to satisfy the young 
man that he would be justified in follow- 
ing Antonio's advice. Yet, as the time 
lor taking the first dreaiied step ap- 
proached, he hesitate<l. There was, a^ 
vet no {iroof of these n en's intentions, 
nor of their previous guilt, to relieve him 
fn)m the charge of deliberate murder. It 
was only the resolute appearance of An- 
tonio, and the obvious collusion of the 
men, whoso furtive glances were, from 
time to time, cast upon him, whii h re- 
stored his self-possession and confirmed 
his resolution. The supper was nearly 
lii'i.-hed. The cheese and dessert were 
pla«-ed ui)on the table. The time for de- 
liberation had passed — that for action 
h;d arrived. The glass of water was 
called for. 

Antonio slipped the cocked pistol into 
his young master's hand ; the trigger was 
pnlfed, and the most powerful of the 
three iiien fell— the ball pierced through 
his heart ilean while, Antonio true to 
his ])roniise, stepping close behind one 
of the other men, discharge<l his pistol at 
him who was opposite, whom he mortally 
wounded ; and then throwing himself up- 
on the third, qui(.'kly disarmed him, and 
with the aid of his young master, secur- 
ed his hands and feet with cords, whi<h 
were found in the apartment, and which 
were evidently intended to be used 
against themselves. Fearing a rescue, 
the pistols were quickly re-loaded ; but 
all was still below. No landlord appear- 
ed to ascertain tie causeof such violence, 
and the only sounds that broke the si- 
lence ol the night were the groans of the 
wounded man, and the execrations of him 
who had been secured. To gain the 
neighboring town, and to communicate 
with the authorities, was the next consid- 
eration. 

It was a^ireed, that while M. dc C 

undertook to seek for aid, Antonio

the afternoon, with the soiled pants he had 
worn, in which was rolled a butcher-knife ;

at the time being accompanied by another 
lady; Caroline having told him soa:e 
time previous that she was determined to 
niarrv a young man in the village who 
was asking her hand, and thus put an end 
to their illicit, unlawful and unholy inter- 
course. To this Munroe was opposed, 
and on seeing her in the lawn, he deter- 
mined to follow her and demand that she 
would abandon her notions ; with this 
thought, he followed his victim until she 
parted from her companion, which was 
near the cemetery. Soon after her friend 
left her, Caroline discovered Munroe ; 
she thereupon turned and met him, and 
they walked along together, talking of 
her intended marriage, and passing 
into the cemetery, sat down to 
gether. Munroe avers that during 
this time he had no design to 
commit murder; but when near 
the cemetery, he stopped and inquired if

Neither lane lord nor maid was to be seen. 
Not a sound disturbed the tranipiil air, 
and being now cssured of the direction, 

and the distance, M. de C galloped 

to the town, which he found, as the girl 
had stated, to be but a short distance 
from the outskirts of the forest. He gave 
information, and the authorities, having 
only too much reason to belive the truth 
of his story, at once directed goadarmes 
to accompany him to the inn. 

The three men were recognized as 
notorious brigands. The poor girl, who 
had hid herself in the loft over the stable, 
fln<ling the young traveler safii, came 
from her hiding-place, willingly aided the 
investigation of the gendarmes, and was 
able to point out where thirte«^n travelers 
had been buried, after having been rob- 
bed and 'murdered by the very wretches 
from whose hands she had been so instru- 
mental in rescuing M. de C . 

The landlord was subsequently arres- 
ted, and his complicity being proved, his 
house was razed to the ground, and he 
with the surviving bandit, hung.

ed to keep her from marrying ; when she 
replied, nothing but death. Whereupon 
a sudden desire to kill her formed in his 
heart, and he immediately sprang upon 
her, stabbing her with the butcher-knife, 
which he still retained in his possessior^, 
exclaiming, as he did so, "then our doom 
is fixed : we die together." After killing 
the partner ol his crimes, he struck the 
knife into his own throat once or twice, 
and fell in a swoon, throwing his knifii 
away. He lay in this w.ay for some time, 
when he revived and found that he was 
likelv to live, he looked lor the knife, and 
not "finding it, he opened the wound with 
his hands, and f-dl upon his face, that the 
blood might flow freely. In this condi- 
tion he was found. 

At three o'l lock on Wednesday morn- 
ing he was committed to jail, into which 
his wife accompanied him, and there he 
now lies, likely to recover of his wounds, 
in order that hV may snlfcr for the penalty 
prescribed by law lor the crime he has 
comtuitted.

The Press IK(>|torters. 

At a long tal'le in the center of the 
room weie seated several young gentle- 
men, dressed with singular independence 
of style. From one point of view they 
look like actors, bearing about them signs 
of fatigue, as if from heavy night work. 
Observed again, they resembled young 
lawyers of the indolent habits and scanty 
praetiee, who had just dropped in to 
watch the case. 

From their conversation, no clue to 
their professional identity could be gath- 
ered. They were cracking joke.s, pro- 
pounding corundrums, and telling stories 
humoronslv broad to each other. Every- 
thing was to them a legitimate amuse- 
ment. The proceedings of the day be- 
fore were peculiarly rieh with funny remi- 
niscences ; and one tall, bright, cuily- 
haired fellow was evokiii.' roars of laugh- 
ter by his capital mimicry of two Df the 
dullest witnesses. Another was drawing 
comic profiles of a sleepy juryman on a 
scrap of i)aper. He had previously 
dashed offavery happy sketch of the cor- 
oner, and hail shown it to that functionary 
who "haw-hawed" ami pronounced it 
" devilish g od," and, in turn, presented 
the young artist with a fine Havana cigar, 
which he playfully put in his mouth and 
chewed the end of. Yet there were about 
tliest young gentlemen signs of business, 
which an intelligent observer might have 
easily inteq^reted. Fiom the outside 
breast pockets of each of them protruded 
a number of pencils, and from their lower 
side pockets thick memorandum books 
with gray covers, or stitlly folded quires 
oi foolscap. 

There were the reporters of the press 
— the gamins and good fellows of litera- 
ture — fellows of inexhaustible resource-s. 
who carry their wits literally at their 
fingers' ends — who can do more than ex- 
tract sunbeams from cucumbers ; for they 
can makeup thrilling facts out of nothing 
— who can thread their way through a { 
crowd where a tape-worm would be 
squeezed to death — whose writing desk 
is usually another man's back ; and who 
sketch o it a much better speech between 
an orator's shoulder-blades than he is 
making in front — whose written language 
is a perplexity compared with which 
(4reek is a relaxation and Sanscrit a posi- 
tive amusement — who deal in adjectives, 
know their jirecise value, and how to ad- 
minister then^ as an apothecary knows 
the drugs that are bcxed and bottlud on 
his shelves — who are less men than parts 
of an enormous mill grinding out grist to 
be branned and bolted in the editorial 
rooms, made into food in the prmting of- 
fice and press vault, and served up hot 
for the public's breakfast next morning. 
Clever^ witty, insatiable fellows they, 
for whom a planet ought to be set apart, 
where all the murders are wrapped in 
impenetrable mystery, and the smallest 
railroad accidents are frightful catastro- 
phes. — Bound the Block.

x^ECiisi^ATivE statistic;*. 

We published yesterday a list of the mrra- 
bi^rs and omctrs of the State Le^'i>lature, jriv- 
in- t'K' iKimo of each, his connty, post onice 
ii.ldrcs'^, occupation, age, nativity, the date of 
his settlement in Minnesota, nnd v.hetlicr mar- 
ried or siii.:;lc. which v. .11 be transfciTcd to the 
Lcg!:-l.i:ivc Manual. 

N.VTIVITV, 

As last year we aga.n have to notice the 
fact thut among tlic members of the Legisla- 
ture there is not a sinirle native of Minncsotn. 
ft fart wh'ch is suOiciei.tly indicative of the 
y.mth of our Stat". An analysis of the na- 
tivities of the mcmhcrs shows that tweuty-six 
are from tlio Nc-.v Kngland States, as fol- 
lows: Six from Maine; eight from New 
ITampshirc; eight from Vermont; four from 
Massachusetts; one from Cfmnccticut. 
Last year the New Englandcrs in th.e j 
Legislunrc numbcrel thirty-four. Of 
the ^other States New York gives the Legis- 
lature sixteen of its members; rcnnsylvani.i, 
six; Ohio, 4; Illinois, 6; Maryhmd. 1 ; North 
Car<d;na;l ; Ireland, 4; Germany, 1 ; NovaSco- 
tu», 1; Canada, 1, and UnghiTid one. The 
New Kngiand element, which is but eleven 
per cent, of our population, is furty per cent, 
of the Legislature ; last year it .was tilty-iour 
p -r cent., a signilicant ilUistratiu:i of the go- 
aheadativeness which makes the Yankee, bv 
liook or cT.iok, the ruling element in every 
community where he finds a fi^othold. The 
State of New Yirk, whose sons constitute thir- 
teen per cent, ot our populati.m, gives the 
Leiii.d.iture twcnty-tive per cent, of its uiom- 
bcrs. New York and New England, together. 
would make a two-thirds vote of a joint con- 
venti m of the two hou.scs, ] 

SETTLEMENT IX MIXXESOT.V. 

This year, as last, more than half the mem- 
bers of the Legisl.iturc emi,-ratcd to Minneso- 
ta in the years 185-5, 18-56 and 1857, which was 
the period of the greatest emigration to this 
St ite. Two came to the State or Territory in 
1841). one in 18t0, one in 18-50, two in ISJl.one 
in 1S52, tlirce in 1S.53, live in IS'.t. eleven in 
18.5-5, eleven in iS-5G, twelve in 18-57, four in 
18-5S, three in 18-50 and one in 18G1. Hon- 
John McKusiek, who came to the State in 
1810, is the oldest resident of the State. 

CCCVPATIOXS. 

Twenty-seven of the mcmbeis arc farmers; 
thirteen are lawyers; nine are merchants; 
three arc lumber dealers ; ti,vo are hotel-keep- 
ers; one is a t.iuner; one a physician; one a 
builder ; one a railroad president. 
.\or. 

The average aire of the members is much 
greater than that of any previous Legislature 
in this State. 

Fifty of the sixty-three members are over 
thirty-live years of acre— belonging thus to the 
secund class of enroMcd men. Of the remain- 
der only three are less than thirty years old. 
The youngest member is Mr. I. L. Gibbs ol 
Freeborn, who is twenty-live years old. The 
oldest are Messrs, Daniels, Langley and Por- 
ter, who have each reached the respectJible age 
of fifty-fonr years.

flEETVA^. TIIE VICTOR ArXER 
AI.L.. 

The Illustrated Sporting AVtr.t, (Knglisii.j 
has the following in relation to the fight be- 
tween King and Hcenau : 

"On the ISth round King was thrown so 
heavily it was thouglit he was out of time, and 
it took his seconds some time belore they 
eould get him round ag.iiu ;" :^'.i<l it adds : 

[Here the Kiniiites broke into the rmg, ana 
the remaiiuler of the Jiglit w;)s carried on aiv.K 
much disorder, lu the confusion wo un.-se.t 
the two succeeding rounds, but they were 
verv short and in favor of Heenan. Kin.ir 
soon recovired, and immediately afterwaru 
turned the tide of fortune in his favor, Hee- 
nan rapidly and suddenly getting weak.] 

This account resumes on the ^Ist roun | 
The Sporting Life descrilics King as thrown 
heavily and unconscious, and that "it requir- 
ed all the skill and attention of his seconds to 
bring him to anything like a sense of his posi- 
tion." Then it describes the rush of the 
Kingites, and says: "This, as a matter of 
course, atforded our Tom an interval of rest." 
The Cincinnati Gazette comments on these 
facts as follows : 

From all this it wiU t)e gathered that in this 
affair Hcenau had a second experience ot the 
l.oaste.1 i:u-li-;h love of fair play ; and that, 
as at Farnborou-h, he had to beat not only 
the ch-impion, but the erowd, who were de- 
termined that the award should uot be given 
to an American. It is pl.dnly bhown that 
King wa« unable to come to time, and that by 
the rules of the lincr Heenan was the winner. 
But the crowd ruslu-d in, and, l)y a nicely ar- 
ranirtd and protracted disorder gave their 
man lime to eome to. What other foul play 
Heenan suifered in this rush is not revealed; 
but it was not strange that here, as m his tight 
with Savers, when his opponent could not 
•orae to time, and the refeiees wor.ld not 
III ,ke a .lecision, and the n-owd would not let 
the fight be finished, he should have grown 
wild Itnd incautious. It was t..omuch to ex- 
peet of human pluck that it should eoufnuic 
with the same spirit a struggle against a pre- 
determined conclusion.

We remit to the Legi-slature now in 
session the important duty of furnishing 
a practical answer to the interrogate ries 
addressed to us by "an enlisted man of 
the First Minnesota volunteers." Con- 
eidering that, as our veteran shows by 
official documents, while Connecticut and 
Massachusetts are paying the equivalent 
of $32.3 or more in'.cash, and other States 
or subdivisions are paying all tbe way 
from $2U0 to -'?-')00 bounties to veteran 
volunteers — Minnesota pays no State 
hmnty, and the counties and cities don't 
pay much more. Considering these 
things, gentlemen, "what good reason 
can you give" our veteran correspond- 
ent "why a veteran of tbe First Minneso- 
ta, feeling it his duty to serve his coun- 
try until the war is over, should not 
proceed to Vermont or New Jersey, for 
instance, and re enlist there?" The 
question is one of startling import to the 
honor of this State, and we commend it, 
gentlemen, to your prompt and earnest 
consideration :

Ix our notice of the arrival of recruits from 

La Crescent, yesterday morning, it should 

have b;.cn sta'tcd that the bounty given was 

the highest raised 1)y private subscription in 

any town, instead of the highest ofiered by 

any town. It is also but justice to add the 

names of George Winihip, J. T. Mumma, and 

F. Winka, to those who were instrumental in 

securing the volunteers, and entitled to credit 

therefor.

about four hundr«d yards ot the .Michigan 
'■outheru cros>ing. some siveu miles out. 
There, at 6 o'clock on Friday morning, al 
most eiicht hours behind tauo, ths trim 
plunged into an inimen>e drift, which lay di- 
rcctlv across its w;iv. The powerful locomo- 
tire iiushed ahead fivht royally at llrsr, b..u! 
tering the snow in glittcriug clouds upon each 
sidc.Vs easily as a ship wouhl part the toam. 
Further and still further into ihcdntt, and 
•slower and still slower went the engiuo. I- 
lab .red and >-irui:gled as if loth to give up tht 
contest but linallv stopiHMl. The faithful en- 
"iuecr then sought to back the locomotive 
but the powerful engine was now within th- 
cra-^p of a giant, in whose hinds its strength 
was but of a child. The wind, white frciglr 
trlittering in the frosty :iir, swept around lli. 
ill fateirtra'u and brought it closer withm the 
ehilling coils of the merciless dr.ft. The tia n 
far from assistance, was imprison*. d in tin 

snow! , ,. „ . 

The scene, when tie passengers re ilizer 
the periU of their situation, was s > tL-nibl- 
real as to liartle all descrii-tiun. There v.xn 
over a humlrcil passengers on board, many ot 
tlum being wouun and childixu, with but a 
thi'Tt supplv of w.od. 

Death under .nnv circumstances, is so tcr- 
ri!)lc, that the strongest and bravest pale when 
thev realize that thcv arc in its presence. I>ui 
whin men are compidlcd to sit and watch its 
conduir aud note the lliglit of each mouieui 
which brings its icy touch nearer and maivr, 
there is something In ic so grandly tcnibU 
iliat. while there is the faintest hope of avert 
ing it.the we.ikcst arms arc nerved with gi 
ant's strength, and the faintest hearts with thi 
bravest resolution. One by one, out mto tlu 
blinding storm went those who were ablc.anr 
di"Mng down thr-aigh the sunw drilts which 
were piled over them, they tore up the fences 
ue.ir the ro.^.d and brou-lit them as luel to lh( 
cars Here was something wiiicli would pro 
videwarnnh until thcv cuuld be rescued f.or.i 
their perilous situation, 'i'lie boards wen 
broken up and the fast-cooling stoves soon

rushed along drew the fames up through tin 
kindling pine, until stove and pipe wore hc.-.t 
ed red. Then anew i)cril broke u])on tin 
"a^scn^crs. The roof of the cur took tvo trom 
The helted pi->c, and, as the wind caught thi

One woman had given her eldest chdd, a 
Cirl two and a half vears, into the hands of a 
strong man to rarry. He had deposited the 
child safelv in the train. The mother attempt- 
ed to follow with a babe of four mouths 
loldcd to her breast. She found she could not 
endure it and returned whence she cime. And 
so mother and ch Id were separateu. The 
latter suficrcd less than the mother probably, 
for wrapped in a heavy shawl she .mjoou feel 
a>*leep, and weikc to be carefully led and

snow by a Mr. Wni: Comstock, residing in 
Miunesotii, when tiie tra n left. Mr. C. wa.s 
one of the noble hearted passengers from the 
Michigan Soutlitrn train, who vduuterred to 
ii"lp the woin.in and children over the snov.- 
drift, and relates than when midway between 
the twotndns found a little hoy stuck to the 
inn pits in the snow, and crying bitterly, 
lie took him to the tr.iin, where the little fel- 
ow inl.'rmed him, between his sobs, that his 
mother had started with him from the other 
train. Kightlv coujectur.ng that she must be 
Mjuiewhcie ne.ar where he found the boy, he 
made his wav back as near as possiiile, to the

of the pitiless storm. That were certaui

vied witli the men in their efforts for the com- 
mon safety. More than one fair h:;nd now 
eagerly gr,i.«=pcd the glitterin- sn nv. a im .mcnt 
before' regarded as their greatest peril, an., 
hailed it as the angel of their dehver.iuee. 
Some of the men wih hatches mounted the 
top of the car and commenced cuttuj;

brave women carried snow and dashed itlrom 
the outsido and from the inside upon the 
burning roof. At lir<t it ?eemed as it ab 
hope were va"n, but energies were not slack- 
ened or hearts nnuerved. The contest wa> 
brief but desperate, and resulted in the Ilame^ 
being quelled. The win<l and snow cau.c 
ru>thin- iu ;>t the aperture in the roof, and the 
tar was no longer tenabie. AH

taken against similar disaster there, l^i 
the ashes h.id been unfortunately remove.! 
from the stove in this car, ami, when antici- 
pating no (iMnccr, the Hour of the car took hrc 
trom the bottom of the stove. It was mucii 
e i^ier extingui-ihed than the other, b-:t not 
without cous-deraldc l.ibor, or until a consid- 
erable portion of the floor had been cut away, 
and that car rendered untenable also. 

The p.issengers of the entire tiam were now- 
huddled together in the only remainrng car. 
It was now nearly two o'clock in the altir- 
noon, and tiiero were no signs of the storm 
abating or of anv deliverance reaching them. 
A sense that tciiil)le sulferings and a horrible 
death awaited them in the hours of darkness 
now not far removed, was gaining ground 
among tlie passengers, and one by one they 
BUtfered themselves to drift away into that 
state oflistless inditfcrcnce which ever char- 
acterizes men who are calmly awaiting a fate 
they cannot avert. .. », j • »„ 

Suddenly, liowevcr. they were startled into 
new hope bv the arrival of a tram of th" 
Michi"ui Southern Railroad. It stopped at 
the crossing of the two roads, only s.une four 
hundred vards distant, and its conductor 
<.i"ni(ied h'is readiness to tiikc the passengers 
ot'thc Michiirnn Central train into the city. 
The work of transferring them was immcui- 
ately eommenecd, the engine in the meantiiue 
moving the train slowly backwards and tor- 
wards to prevent the snow from drifting 
around and under it. The distance between 
the two trains, nearlv four hundred yards, 
WIS filled with a drift nearly ten feet m 
dep'th. and to make the passage from one to 
the other was a work of great lib or and diRi- 
cultv The storm w.as at its height .^nd the 
cold so intense that the faces of the women 
and children were frozen almost as soon as 
thev came in contact with the wmd— ttiniing 
white as instantly as if they had been plunged 
in boiling water." Scarcely any one made the 
i>a«sagc from one train to the other without 
being badlv frost-bitten, many qmtc seriously. 
Cold as it was m the car, those who had not 
had occasion to expose themselves to the 
storm prcviouslv, knew little of the ordeul 
through which they must pa.ss m oner to 
reach the other train. Strong men fell by the 
wav— frail women dropped down unable to

The Story of the Green Room. 



ft'onsieurdeC , when averyyoung 

m;»n, being on his retdrn hoiue from 
Franc*', \,y the South of Italy, from a 
tour through the southern part of K«- 
rope, took the opportunity to pay a long 
pn.nii.si'tl vi>it to an unclf, anicclesiastK-. 
Although personally a stranger to his rel- 
ative, his reception was full of kintlness 
anil tordiality, and !^o agreeably did the 
time I>a^<s, that liom day to day he was 
inelinctl to prolor.g hi^ visit. At length 
his departure could no longer be deter- 
red. Traveling at that time was a mat- 
ter of phvsieal didieulty. There were 
no puMie eonveyanees ; the roads were 
so bad as to be sometimes impassable ; 
and the inns v/ere execrable. The few 
travelers whom necessity, the love of 
knowledge, or the marvelous, temi>ted 
Ircni home, performed their journeys on 

lior»el;:iek, therefore, M. de C must 

80 travel. 'When he laid the programme 
of his route belore his relative, the good 
man shook his head. 

"You will scarce reach your first day's 
halt bflbre nighthUl," sa"id he, "The 
road is not sale: the forest through 
wlwrh it ]>.isses is lojiely, and notonous 
lor the boldiie<s and cruelty of the ban- 
dits who infest it. To travel thrjngh if 
alone wouM be madness ; in fact, 1 shotdd 
eonsi lev myself responsible to your father 
if I gave my sanction to such an arrang- 
ment." 

The idea of an adventure was. however, 
rather agreeable tiuan other wi-se to the 
vouni; traviler— he assured his uncle 
that U- h.-.d no fears; that ifattacketl, he 
WIS able to defend himself; and having 
already prolonged his absence beyond 
the fixe 1 time, liis latlior would be jzreatly 
disappointed, and, however much he 
uui-!t regret to Kjuit his uncle's hospitabh; 
roof, a'sense ot duty urged him to delay 
no longer. The abbe at length unwiil- 
inglv acceded to his nej)hew's v.•i^hes, on 
condition that an ohl and trusty servant 
should accompany him. 

••True it is 'ong since Antonio east off 
the uniform of a soldier," said the old 
gentleman, "but you may rely on his 
courage and pri-.dence." 

To this condition there could be no ob- 
jection, -dmX accordingly, after having re- 
ceived the parting blessing of his nncle, 
theyo'.in^ man ^et out, well armed, and 
.accompanied by the trusty Antonio. 
Koon was some hours past, when, still 
phxhlii-.g through tangled fori'sts, and 
tliroMgh (]an;i:erous ways, the travelers 
ioiMuUhemselves, with iiorses tired, and 
lluir distance from the town, at whiih 
tliey were to make tiieir first night's halt, 
stii'l niiascertained. For the fir.>t time it 
occurred to tlie young man that his good 
uncle's anticipation might possibly be- 
re.dized. Mile alter mile was passed, 
with increasing dilheulty. 

The tall pines seemed to close the way, 
r.ow reduced to a mere path. The only 
sound which at intervals reached their 
ears, was that of the woodman's axe. To 
obtain nlreshu.ent for their horses, and 
shelter lor themselves, became every 
mumerit a matter of necessity. Hitherto 
there had been no indication of alode or 
sh Iter of any kind, and they had almost 
dc.-paired of linding shelter, when a 
Llui.-h smoke was observed rising, at no 
great distance, in the calm evuiinij air, 
and oucring to the:i' a signal of nle'. 

Turniitgoii thedlitct track, they tbund 
themselves jireaently before what ai>- 
peared to be an inn, though by no means 
of an inviting clia::ieter Whatever their 
di?ai)pointmtiit, thi-re wa.s no room for 
choice, and they accepted the invitaion 
of "mine host" to enter, v,-liilu their 



room, and in his absence would over- 
power, rob and murder him : should he 
reJuse, they would effect their object du- ; 
ling the nij^ht. 

She further informed him that the dis- | 
tance from the town was only half a 
leacue. and which he might have easily 
reached ; but now it was too late — warn- 
ing had been given to the band, and they 
must protect themselves. 

Then, trembling at the thought of how 
she endangered her own lile, by divulg- 
ing the secrets of the prison-house, she 
l)rayed him not to betray her. M. de 
C could only express his thanks— as- 
suring her nothing could induce him to 
compTomise her; and thus re-assured, 
she left the room. * 

What was to be done ? Even if they 
succeeded in ellecting their escape from 
the house, tb*>v cprtiinly would be inter- 
cepted, 'iiic v.-.iiger uiust therefore be 
met wheri: they ^. . re. Assuming the 
girl's story to be true, Antonio recom- 
mended that they should take the initia- 
tive, and not defer their defense to the 
night. He suggested that the men should 
be° admitte«l, and the seats so placed at 
the table tliat the most powerful of the 
baml should be opposite to his young 
master — the two others on either side, 
and opposite oneanother. That he should 
not leave the room on any pretence what- 
ever ; and that after he had placed the 
cheese upon the table with the desert, 
his ni'ster was to ask for a glass of wa- 
ter, when he should put his pistol into 
his hand, which he should at once dis- 
charge at the man opposite to him. 

" For the others," said Antonio, 
" leave them to me." 

The landlord's foot was now heard on 
t'nc stairs, and, entering the room, he 
apologized for his intrusion by stating 
that three travelers, old customers, who 
made a point, journeying that way, to 
pass a nii;ht at his unworthy house, and 
had just^ arrived; that he was very un- 
willing to send them away, at such a time 
of night, unrefreshed ; that he lamented 
to say that he had no other room with 
which to accommodate them, and prayed 
that his distinguished ^uest would permit 
tile gentlemen to sup with him. Such 
condescension would render him forever 
grateful. 

Tiie girl's story was but too faithfully 

corroborated. M. de C could no 

longer doubt. The real nature of their 
position became too apparent.^ The land- 
lord's request was granted. The supp*-"r 
was placed on the table, and the tliree 
travelers introduced. ISo forbidding was 
their aspec, that, even without the pre- 
vious warning, they must have inspired 
mistrust. The chairs were occupied as 
Antonio had arranged. The meal pro- 
ceeded but could not boast of any social 
elements. 
One observed that the young cavalier did 
not eat ; another discovered that he had 
lelt his snnll-box below— might not the 
servant fetch it ? Various clumsy expe- 
dients were tried, but in vain, to rid 
themselves of the presence of the stern- 
looking old soldier, which only tended to 
contirni, in its full extent, the prophetic 
warning o! the young girl. The only re- 
ply which Antonio condescended to make 
was to knock on the floor, that the land- 
lord might execute the wishes of his 
friends. 

Iso landlord, however, appeared: 
everv action of the men tended to increase 
ipprehehsion, and to satisfy the young 
man that he would be justified in follow- 
ing Antonio's advice. Yet, as the time | 
for taking the Grit dreaded step ap- 
proached, he hesitated. There was, as 
yet no proof of these n.en's intentioris. 
nor ol their previous guilt, to relieve him 
from the charge of deliberate murder. It 
was only the resolute appearance ol An- 
tonio, and the obvious collusion of the 
men, whose furtive glances were, from 
time to time, cast upon him, which re- 
stored his self-possession and confirmed 
his restdution. The supper Avas nearly 
fini.-hed. The cheese and dessert were 
placed upon the table. The time for de- 
liberation had passed— that for action 
hid arrived. The glass of water was 
cilied for. 

Antonio slipped the cocked pistol into 
his young master's hand ; the trigger was 
pulled, and the most powerful of the 



Munroe, whose throat was cut in such a 
manner as to preclude the idea of his life 
being saved. 

By careful inquiry we learn that Mun- 
roe had been a resident of Yellow Springs 
more than than three years, and that be- 
fore he came to Yellow Springs he had 
been associated with Nichols, the Apostle 
of Free-loveism, by whom he was beggar- 
ed. Nevertheless, Munroe still adhered 
to the infernal ism, which had brought 
fiim to a murder's cell. 

The unfortunate young woman was 
named Caroline Umbenhour, and was 
Munioe's wife's sister. They were both 
believers in the doctrine of free-love, 
and as the legitiin.atc coiisequence of their 
criminality, she bore him a child, and at 
the time of her murder we are informed 
was again enciente. Munroe does not 
endeavor to hide his crime, but gives his 
statement m a straightforward manner ; 
says that he was out helping a neighbor 
to butcher, returning to his home late in 
the>fternoon, with the soiled pants he had 
worn, in which was rolled a butcher-knife ; 
met Caroline in Judge Mill's lawn, she 
at the time being accompanied by another 
ladv; Caroline having told him some 
time previous that she was determined to 
marry a young man in the village who 
was asking her liand,and thus put an end 
to their illicit, unlawful and unholy inter- 
course. To this Munroe was opposed, 
and on seeing her in the lawn, he deter- 
mined to follow her and demand that she 
would ab.andon her notions ; with this 
thought, he followed his victim until she 
parted from her companion, which was 
near the cemetery. Soon after her friend 
left her, Caroline discovered Munroe; 
she thereupon turned and met hiin, and 
they walked along together, talking of 
her intended marriage, and passing 
into the •.•emetery, sat down to 
gether. !Munroe avers that 
this time he had no 
commit murder; but when near 
the cemetery, he stopped and inquired if 
there was nothing that could be interpos- 
ed to keep her from marrying; when she 
replied, nothing but death. Whereupon 
a sudden desire to kill her formed in his 
heart, and he imme<Hately sprang upon 
her, stabbing her with the butcher-knife, 
which he still retained in his possession, 
exclaiming, as he did so, "then our doom 
is fixed ; we die together." After killing 
the partner ol his crimes, he struck the 
knile into his own throat once or twice, 
and iell in a swoon, throwing his knife 
away. He lay in this way for some time, 
when he revived and found that he was 
likely to live, he looked for the knife, and 
not finding it, he opened the wound with 
his hands, and fell upon his face, that the 
blood might How freely. In this condi- 
tion he was found. 

At three o'clock on Wednesday morn- 
ing he was committed to jail, into which 
his wife accomiKinied him, and there he 
now lies, likely to recover of his wounds, 
in order that he may suller for the penalty 
prescribed by law for the crime he has 
committed. 

Munroe is -It years of age, a man of 
weakly constitution, but of rather more 
than ordinary inteEect, and at this time 
is engaged in making a lull confession of 
his crime. — Cincinnati Oazette.

At a lonjc table in the center 



horses shonld be baited, with the inten- , . 

tion of n acliii.g theii destination before three iMU fell— the ball pierced tlironii;h 



nigiit. The hiiidlord, adecting a saiiev 
roughne.'is.'" exprefsed hi:s fear that, how- 
ever filad he'd lo to forward the r.oble 
cavalier on his jonruey, seeing tiiat his 
house could not oiler the accomodation 
his di^iil>guished guest would require, 
\et, as hid his excellency seemed to be 
a stranger, and not well aecpiaititi'd with 
the dai'gers of the road or the distance to 

, he must forgive his blunt ness, if he 

ventured to say that .--ome hor.rs might 
be spent before they could clear the lor- 
est, wliere they would be exposed to 
dangers the mo.-t fearful, against which 
neitheir arms nor their courage :;ouhl 
protect them, and from which be had him- 
self n^orc than once with dilfieuky 
escaped. 

These ^cpro^en^ations hid t'l ir effect. 

M. de C took counsel of Antonio, 

who coulu only suggest that bad ac<.omo- 
datiou and miserable fare were, at ail 
evei:ts, to be preferred to an unequal 
struggle, in a close l»ound forest, with ait 
invisible, but erud a.iu I'elealless enemy, 
who was seldom known to perpetrate 
the eriiiie of robbery without a<hling to it 
that of murder. With disguised reluctance 
the young man relinquished his intention 
to proceed ; so, after bestowing tiieir 
first care on their horses, master and 
man returned to the house, resolved to 
acc"pt chctrfiiUy what could not be 
avoided. 

The only domestic who appeared was 
a girl, whose jouthful anxious counte- 
nance natura'ly awakened a feeling ol in- 
terei-t in the heart of tlie young traveler. 
" Ninetta, you will show this no'ole 
gentleman to the Green Room," said her 
m.ister. 

L'p a rough and dirty staircase, M. de 
C ani Antonio follo-.vt.;d the gen- 
tie guide, into a room with two comlort- 
less-looking bedstea<ls, the dingy cur- 
tains of which fell like palls around the 
beds. 1 hese, with a few chairs and an 
unplaned table, constituted the whole ot 
the furniture of the apartment. 

Here the girl left them. The landlord 
was now heard to leave the house, and 
the girl returned to the room, where she 
busied herself in preparing the beds — ex- 
hibiting, however, a restlessness of man- 
ner, and an evident desire to attract the 
attention of the young cavalier, which 

could not be mistaken. M. de C 

api>roached her. 

In a few whispered words, she warned 
bim that the intention was to rob and 
murder him and his servant ; and, in 
proof of her assertions, she, in a hurried 
and trembling voice, told him that the 
landlord would immediately rtturn to the 
house, to say that some travelers, who 
were in the iiabit of journeying that way, 
had just arrived, and having no other 
room to ask them to, he would ask 
whether the cavalier would permit them 
to sup with him. Shonld he consent, 
those supposed travelers would take the 
opportunity to send his servant out of the 



his heart. Meanwhile, Antonio true to 
his i»romise, stepping close behind one 
of the other men, discharged his pistol at 
him who was opposite, whom he mortally 
wounded ; and then throwing himself up- 
on the third, quickly disarmed him, and 
with the aid of his young master, secur- 
ed his hands and feet with cords, which 
were found in the apartment, and which 
were evidently intended to be used 
against themselves. Fearing a rescue, 
the pistols were quickly re-loaded ; but 
all was still below. No landlord appear- 
ed to ascertain tl.e causeof such vio ence, 
and the only sounds that broke the si- 
lence of the night were the groans of the 
wounded man, and the execrations of him 
who had been secured. To gain the 
neighboring town, and to communicate 
v/ith the authorities, was the next consid- 
eration. 

It was agreed, that while ^I. de C 

undertook to seek for aid, Antonio 
should remain to guard the prisoners. 
Cautiously descending the staircase, 
where danger might still be lurking, M. 

de C made his way to the stable. 

Neither lane lard normaid was to be seen. 
Not a sound disturbed the tranquil air, 
and being now : ssured of the direction, 

and the distance, M. de C galloped 

to the town, which he found, as the girl 
had stated, to be but a short distance 
from the outskirts of the forest, lie gave 
information, and the authorities, having 
only too much reason to belive the truth 
of his story, at once directed gendarmes 



to accompany him to the inn 

The three men were recognized as 
notorious brigands. The poor girl, who 
had hid herself in the loft over the stable, 
finding the young traveler safe, came 
from her hiding-place, willingly aided the 
investigation of the gendarmes, and was 
able to point out where thirteen travelers 
had been buried, after having been rob- 
bed and murdered by the very wretches 
from whose hands she had been so instru- 
mental in rescuing M. de C . 

The landlord was subsequently arres- 
ted, and his complicity being proved, his 
house was razed to the ground, and he 
with the surviving bandit, hung. 



of the 
room weic seated several young gentle- 
men, dressed with singular independence 
of style. From one point of view they 
look'like actors, bearing about them signs 
of fatigue, as if from heavy night work. 
Observed again, they resembled young 
lawyers of the indolent habits and scanty 
j)raetice, who had just dropped in to 
watch the case. 

From their conversation, no clue to 
their professional identity could be gath- 
ered. They were cracking jokes, pro- 
pounding conundrums, and telling stories 
humorously broad to each other. Every- 
thing was to tlx'tn a legitimate amuse- 
ment. The proceedings of the day be- 
fore were peculiarly rich with funny remi- 
niscences ; and one tall, bright, cuily- 
haired fellow was evoking roars of laugh- 
ter by his capital mimicry of two of the 
dullest witnesses. Another was drawing 
comic profiles of a sleepy juryman on a 
scrap of paper. He hail previously 
dashed olTa very happy sketch of the cor- 
oner, and had shown it to that functionary 
who ••haw-hawed" and pronounced it 
" devilish g od," and, in turn, presented 
the young artist with a fine HavAoa cigar, 
which he playfully put in his mouth and 
chewed the end of. Yet there were about 
thest young gentlemen signs of business, 
which an intelligent observer might have 
easily interpreted. Fiom the outside 
breast pockets of each of them protruded 
a number of pencils, and from their lower 
side pockets thick memorandum books 
with gray covers, or stiflly folded (juires 
oi foolscap. 

There were the reporters of the press 
— the gamins and good fellows of litera- 
ture — fellows of inexhaustible resource*, 
who carry their wits literally at their 
fingers' ends — who can do more than ex- 
tract sunbeams from cucumbers ; for they 
can makeup thrilling facts out of nothing 
— who can thread their way through a 
crowd where a tape-worm would be 
squeezed to death — whose writmg desk 
IS usually anotfier man''s back ; and who 
sketch o t a much better 8pee?h between 
an orator's shoulder-blades than he is 
making in front — whose written language 
is a perplexity compared with which 
Greek is a relaxation and Sanscrit a posi- 
tive amusement — who deal in adjectives, 
know their precise value, and how to ad- 
minister them, as an apothecary knows 
the drugs that are bcxed and bottled on 
his shelves — who are less men than parts 
of an enormous mill grinding out grist to 
be branned and bolted in the editorial 
rooms, made into food in the printing of- 
fice and press vault, and served up hot 
for the public's breakfast next morning. 
Clever, witty, insatiable fellows they, 
for whom a planet ought to be set apart, 
where all the munlers are wrapped in 
impenetrable mystery, and the smallest 
railroad accidents are frightful catastro- 
phes. — Round the Block.

The Yellow Ki>ring'a Murder— Frec- 
lioveiniu the Cause. 

On Tuesday afternoon tbe citizens of 
Yellow Springs, Ohio, were stanled by 
the announcement that a wonian had 
been foully murdered in the cemetery 
near the villaj^e, and that the perpetra- 
tor thereof had attempted to kill himself 
by cutting his own throat. On repairing 
to the place such a state of things was 
found really to e.\ist. A young woman, 
twenty- three years of age, was found 
dead, near the side of a new made grave 
having been stabbed many times by a 
butcher knife. At a short distance from 
her corpse lay the almost insensible form 
of a man known by the name of Joshua 



— The Nova Scotia Giantess has got 
into Bamuni's hands at last, and is now on 
exhibition at his Musuin in Now York. The 
great showman has commenced puttiing her, 
and magnifying her already large proportions. 
When she lelt Nova Scoiia a few weeks ago, 
slie weighed about'280pounds,!ind stood about 
7 feet 6 inches hiirh. Now th.nt she is in the 
Museum, her weight is given at 379 pounds, 
and her height 8 feet 1 inch. 

— The rebel Governor Thomas C. 
Reynolds, of Missouri, has put into circula- 
tion State scrip, which is said to be worth 
twenty jj cents on the dollar in Confeder- 
ate niom-y. Cal.mg Confederate money 
worth eight cents on the dollar, which we Ijc- 
lievc is aliout its value, the value of this Mis- 
souri scrip is quite mtinitesimal. 

— The Toronto Olohe says : "We are 
gla<l to sec that Halifax papere, without dis- 
tinction of poiitics, condemn the conduct of 
the mob in rescuing the captors of the Chesa- 
peake, and that two of the rescued prisoners 
have been captured in St. Johns, New Bruns- 
wick. Wc trust that the law of the land 
will be carried out fairly and impartially, that 
British justice will be vindicated, and the in- 
terference of mobs crushed by the hand of 
the Government."

Death of Rev. F. R. Newki.l. — A 

dispatch from St. Louis yc?terd:jy announced 
the sudden death in the morning, of Kov. F. 
R. Ncwetl, late of St. Paul. His disease w.is 
inl'ammutory rheumatism. 

Mr. Newell w.is a gentleman of cultivated 
intellect, great gravity of manners, and con- 
sidenihle natural ability. lie formerly re- 
sided in Boston, where he luid pastoral care 
of a Unitarian Church. Ills he;dth fulling, he 
c.ime to St. Paul about eight years ago, and 
established, by the rcfpicst of ntimerous 
friends here, a Unitarian church, which did 
not however, succeed. Mr. Mewell then 
went into Trade, in which he was engiged at 
the time of th;.' breaUin^ront of the War, when 
he received an appointment as Agent of the 
Sanitary Commissi m, and Chapl.iin to contra- 
bands, a sphere in whieli his , humanitarian 
impulses could tind full scope. lie labored at 
tliis po>t until disea'^c and death cut him 
doivn — resi»eetcd and beloved l»y a large circle 
of friends and acquaintances. 

Mr. Xewell leives a wife .in I three chil- 
dren in this city, to mourn this aftlict ng dis- 
pensation. The sympathies of all are witli 
t.'iera. 



CUKArKP. THAX TRK ClIKAPEST. — GcO. 

Little, on Third street, nearly opposite tlie 
Pioneer ojiiee, has the largest Jtock of sta- 
tionery in the city, to which he invites the 
arteiition of the members of the Legislature 
and others. Also, a very large selection of 
the latest publications t f the d ly. State scrip 
will be t iken nt par, for everything and any- 
thin,' in his establishment, and goods sold :i 
shade lower than any (f his competitors. 3. 



PioGs" DriG Stokk. — We direct .it- 
tm'iontothe fm doiblc column advertise- 
ment of tl'is ho:ise. Mr. B'ggs has siiccccded 
ia b lilding up a very large business, both 
wholesale and ret.nl, and has recently been 
coujpellcd to double his storage room. Th. 
reason is, ho kc 'ps the best and purest Drugs, 
anil sells at a small jiroiit. Country dealers 
understand this, as they nearly all buy of him 
instead of going Ka-t. 



The Si.EiGinxG Yesterday. — Thr 

miM weather yesterday brou._htall the sleighs 
into the street, and tlio principal thorougli 
fares were crowded wirh tl»cra. We noticed 
Fx-Mayor Prince driving an elegant te :m of 
four black ponies; and the turnouts were nu- 
merous .ind stvli.>h. 



Net amount ... $51,.}sl,4>S0 
Of more than one-half the entire amount 
($S0,0.V2.0i)!) expended in constructing and 
enlarging the canals, and interest on the 
money's borrowed by the State for that pur- 
purpose up lo Sept. 30, 1861. And the tolls 
are constantly increasing as the business of 
the canals incroa.so. 

An efibrt '. ■. .i ni.i;> fo blind the people 
toihereal purpose smu^ih in the abrogation 
of the reeiii.\,>i!y u - .ly, by exclaiming that 
before the adopti<m of "that treaty the people 
of Canada were clamorous for anntxation, in 
order to obtain the benefits of free commimi- 
cjition with our people, but that no.v we hear 
Ui'thing of the sort, and on the contrary, in 
the present bitter stniggle we have not a 
frienil in the Ciiinidas. 'I'liisis jn the great pirt 
true ; but to act upon the suggestion of these 
politicians would oidy illustrate the sn])reme 
folly of "cutting your nose to .spite your own 
face." Because our Canadian neighbors an- 
also receiving a benefit from the operation of 
the treaty is the flimsiest possible excuse for 
our seek to deprive ourselves of benefits 
auunmting to millions of dollars per annum. 
It should be remembere.i that if the treaty 
is once abrogated it will be the work of year.s, 
perhaps, to secure another in its stead, if one 
should be deemed desirable, as it affects dif- 
f rent interests in different manners. If the 
treaty is defective, remedy the defects, but do 
notabamlon it. It any ine<|ualities exist in 
its oj'eration, so as to tavor one party at the 
expense of the other, such inequalities can be 
ilonc away with by proper treaties and legis- 
lati -n. 

The reciprocity treaty is one of the few 
measures which have oi)tained Congressional 
sanction, seeking the benefit of the \Vest ; and 
fur this alone was it adoi)ted, although it has 
licen of great value to the whole country. 
1 he West secured it only after a hard strug- 
gle, and It should make a still more vigorous 
on-,' r.uh;'r than allow its repeal. It will be 
productive of much more good to us if we ex- 
tend its operation. 

This is a mater in which every Western 
man — and especially every Western farmer — 
is deeply interested. Let us not then, suffer 
our interests to t)e sacrifieed by our indificr- 
euce or ignor.incc* If any senator or repre- 
sentative from the Northwest allows himself 
to be inveigled into consenting to theabroga- 
ion of the llecipioeity Trcity.do your utmost 
iiereufier, to give him leave to st'iy at home, 
t-r he is lot wor hy of your confidence. But 
lest he should consent to fjicrifiec your inter- 
ests, send your remonstrances tu Congress by 
the thousand it necessary ; and write directly 
to your own iiamedi ite representative, urging 
him to stand between you and the wrong 
uitended you. Let him "know that his cou- 
;titueiits think of these matters, aud that they 
.ire aware of their own rights, privileges and 
interests — Xorlhicesfern Christian Advocate.

t'». C Syllabus ' 

William Bierbaweh, Respt, ) 

In an action by a vender against the vendee 
in the undisturbed possession of real estate, to 
enforce the specific perform.'ince of the con- 
tract for the sale thereof wirhout covenants of 
warranty "or to recover the price agreed to be 
paid, the vendee will not Ik' allowed to re- 
tain the purchase money on the ground mere- 
ly that the vendee had previously quit-clairacd 
his intcrcf't in the property to another, when 
there arc no proofs nor allcfrations of fraud or 
misrepresentations with regard tothe vender's 
title, and the fact of such prior conveyance 
was known to the vendee at the time of the 
purchase. 

When a person claiming to be an occupant 
of lots in a town, and to l)e entitled to deeds 
therefor, under the provisions of the act of 
Congress known as the Town Site Law, con- 
tracts for an agreed sum, <o sell or transfer 
his possession, interest and claim to another 
without warrant, .and in pursuance of said 
contract, puts his vendee in possession, it is 
no defence to an action brought to re? over the 
purchase money, that the vendor had not 
such an occupancy or right to she lots as 
would have ctnitlcd him to a deed therefor, 
under .'^aid act of Congress. 

If a Jury in such a case, to whom the i^snea 
of fact are submitted, tind that »uch oniract 
was made — that the vendor entered into pos- 
session of the proper ;y under it, and that 
such possession was the "consideration for the 
purchase money, the .surrendering or yielding 
such possession to the vender, will be consid- 
ered as a full performance on the part of the 
vender, ot his part of the contract. 

'WlM?n the record is silent on the subject, the 
facts as found by the jury, will be considered 
as covering all matters siibmitted to them. , 
Henry A. Gould, Pl'ff. in Krror, vs. Sab-Dis- 

trict No. 3 of Eagle Creek School District, 

Deft, in Error.— Legu ire agreed to take 
forty acres of land from Gould and cultivate 
the same for one year in small grain, he to 
find all the grain for seed, and rctuni one- 
third of the produce to G<juld. Leguire was 
also to liave the use of a portion of a dwelling 
house for the same time, consisting of several 
rooms specifially iiointcd out and agreed upon. 
He was to p.ay no additional rent for this priv- 
ilege. It did not a;ipcar in the case whether 
the house was or was not on the forty acres. 
i/cW,That no matter what might be the char- 
acter of Lcguire's tenancy of the forty acres 
of land, he was a tenant lor years of that fKJr- 
tion of the house specifically" assigned to him, 
and as such tenant had the right to sub-let 
any portion of it to another tenant. Held 
further, That the leasing of the land and the 
house being one contract and transaction, the 
payment of the share of produce was a suffl 
cicnt consideration to sustain the whole.

Washington, January 5.— The following ii 
the message sent to Congress, to-day, by the 
President : 

By a joint resolution of your honorable 
bodies, approved Dcceml)er '23d, 1863, the 
paying of tountics to veteran volunteers, as 
now practiced by the War Department, is, fo 
the extent of $300 in each case, prohibited af- 
ter the 6th day of the present month. 

I transmit for your consideration a ' ■« 
munication from the Secretary of Wai 
companied by one from the Provost Mar^nal 
General to him, both relating to the subject 
above mentioned. 

1 earnestly recommend that the law b ..o 
modified as to allow bounties to l>cpaid an they 
now are ; at least until the ensuing 1st day cf 
February. 

I am not without anxiety lest I appear to be 
importunate in thus recalling your attention 
to a subject upon which yon have so recently 
acted, and nothing but a deep-conviction that 
the public interest demands it could induce 
me to incur the hazard of being misunder 
stood on this point. The executive approval 
was given by me to the resolution mentioned, 
and it is now, by a closer attention and a fuller 
knowledge of facts, that I feel constrained to 
recommend a reconsideration of the subject. 
(Signed) ABRAHAM LINCOLN.

to that effect has beeii ratified by a popu-

Leaving the last mentioned road out of

amounting to nearly t,00;>,000 acres, have 
a common centre of conviTgence near 
where the Minnesota joins its current to 
that of the Mississippi, making it th<! fo- 
cus of seven great intt?rior transit lines. I 
venture lo din.'cl your attention to this 
prominent feature of our railroad system, 
because it seems to ine that sufficient con- 
sideration has not b<ten given t> the fact, 
that a single railroad 140 miles long from 
this focal point (the particular locality is 
of little imimrtance,) to Lake Superior, 
wouM furnish an outlet for our whole sys 
tern of natural an; I artificial communica- 
tions upon lake navigation, at a distance 
uud cost «.f transit much h.'ss, for three

In general it may be said, that notwith-

This general prosperity has given a new 
imj>etus to our railroad enterprises, while 
the failure of navigation in our large riv- 
ers has developed a new necessity, and fur- 
nished a i)owerful argument, appreciable 
bv Gverv citizen, foj their sjieedy comple- 
tion, i am happy to note the satisfactory 
progress in construction of some of our 
priiicipal Land (Jrant lines, uotwith.stand-

The St Paul & Pacific Railroad is now 
completed and the cars are now running 
from St. Paul to Anoka, a distaace of 
27i.> miles, aitd is graded for 36 miles 
farther, while the iron, 1 am assured, has 
been purchased to complete the track to 
Watab, 80 miles from St l\iul by the Ist 
of next August. 

The Winona and St. Peter Railroatl is 
com[)leted and in operation from Winona 
to St. Charles, a distance of twenty-nir.e 
miles, comprising all the heavy and very 
expensive work between the Mississippi 
uud Minnesota rivers, and is graded for 
thirty miles farther. The iron is said to 
have been purchased and preparations 
made to complete the road to Rochester, 
a di.stance of forty-nine miles from Winona, 
by the 4th of duly, 1864. 

The Minneapolis and (.^edar Valley rail- 
road has been graded from Meudota t o 
Northfield. An exjwusive bridge across 
the Minnesota is in process of construction. 
Ties, iron and rolling stock ai-c reported 
to have been purcha.sed, sufficient to equip 
the road from Minueapolis to its junction

ITS CONNECTION WITH THK M. V. AND 
UNION PACIFIC RAILROAD. 

The immen.se advantages of such an outlet 
wouhl be felt to the farthest extremities of 
our railroad system, through the whole 
circle of trade "and industry, reducing the 
cost of imported commodities, raising the 
value of our grain and other products to 
the standard of Illinois, and virtually pla- 
1 (ring Minnesota upon the same commercial 
ground with that State, as respects the 
cost«)f transportation from and to the At- 
lantic seaboard. It would, besides, form 
a powerful in<lucenient to the early con- 
struction of the Minnesota Valley Railroad, 
the main commercial value of which de- 
pends upon a coimectiou with Lake Supe- 
rior. But its relations to the great {dan 
of Pacific communications marked out by 
Congress, and now in rapid progress of 
construction, give this subject a new im- 
portance. Ry the 1 Ith Section of an .ict 
of < 'ongi-ess, entitled - An Act to aid in 
the construction of a Railroad and 'I'ele- 
graph line from the Mis.-.ouri River to the 
Pacific Ocean, and to secun^ to the Gov- 
ernment the u-;e of the same, fur Postal, 
Military and other purpo.scs," it is provid- 
ed that whenever a railroad .shall hv built 
through Minnesota or Iowa to Sioux City, 
the Fnion Pacific Railroad Company are 
authorized and requiitul lo construct a 
branch line from their road, to connect 
therewith. T'he building of a railroatl from 
Lake Superior to the Mississippi, and its 
continuation through the Minnesota Valley 
to Sioux City, would fulfill the condition 
precedent, an(l give the iiumen.se commerce 
which is (lestined to flow overlaiul between 
the two oceans, a path tif ship navigation 
II huudn^d and thirty miles shorter than by 
anv possible route to Lake Michigan. 
This large reduction of land transit would 
unqui\stionably divert a considerable por- 
tion of this trans-contiuental traflic from 
the great central routes through Minneso- 
ta and enrich our state with the commerce 
of two worlds. Thus by a connection with 
Lake Superior, another powerful induce- 
ment is given to the construction of the 
Minnesota Valley line, not only as an ave- 
nue of local trade, but as an intermediate 
link in the great chain of Pacific and At- 
lantic communication. 

The aid of Congre.s.^. and the couuten- 
iauceofthe I^egislature, will undoubtedly 
be required to complete the work assigned 
' to Minnesota in this continental pro- 
I gramme, and I am confident that whatever 
i safe and prudent legislation or moral sup- 
I port in Congress may be required to pro- 
1 mote these important objects, will be 
I cheerfully granted. It will be a wonder- 
ful witness to the world abroad and to fu- 
ture ages, of the prodigious energies fos- 
tered by the fn^ institutions of this great 
American Republic, if while engaged with 
one hand iu suppressing the mightiest nv 
bellion that ever convulsed a natiou, or 
menaced civilization, it .shall pujjh forward 
this stupendous project of a Pacific rail- 
way to completion, and erect the grandest

FIXANCLAI. CONDITION, 

The Reports of the various departments 
afford a gratifyingevidence of the industry, 
fidelity, and succe.ss, with which the largely 
increavsed and complicated business of the 
several offices has been transacted. 

The condition of the Treasury was nev- 
er more satisfactory than now.

fiscal year ending November 30, 1863, were 
as follows :

the reduction of the int<'P'st tax from two 
mills to one mill on the dollar, and that 
the difference be adtled to the revenue tax. 

The shorlening of your .session would 
also aid in effecting the object V)y a)>out 
|2.000 a week. 

In addition to this 1 wouhl recommend 
mor(; strintrent provisions for the collection 
of the poll tax, which fnmi the failure of 
town treasurers to comply with the law, 
has this year produce«l scarcely more than 
a third oi" the amount <lue from this source. 

These measures, whih' adding nothing to 
th« present aggregate tax rate, will, without 
doubt, furnish ample resources for meeting 
the pnvsent floating debt, and i)uttiiig an end 
to the .shameful necessity of issuing depie- 
ciated si-rip for the curn^nt expenses of the 
State Government, and thus taxing the 
meagre salaries of State offiers to cover 
the deficit in the Treasury.

SCHOOL LANDS. 

The Land Department was established by 
an act of the Legislature in 1802, and its 
operations have since been chiefly confined 
to the disposition of the School laud.s un- 
der the wise and (conservative regulations 
adopted by your predece.ssors. The wis- 
dom of that policy, which has been ably 
seconded by the 'officer having in charge 
its practical application, has been am[)ly 



of the Auditor and Altorney Ceneral. It 
is onlv ne.-essary to add upon this subjc-ct 
that the mi>.st important financial inten^t 
of the State is iuvolved in the pu die lands, 
and no subject is moi-e worthy, o- more im- 
peratively demands the thoughtf d consid- 
eration of the Legislature.

observed in the disposition of 
.school lan<is. had not controlled 
management of the University reservt^s. 
To devise and adopt .some jdau by which 
this munificent endowment can be extrica- 
ted from its embarrassiiu'nts and saved to 
l\w grand cause for which it wa« designed, 
is .1 subject worthy of your mos; profound 
contcmplatioi!, aii«'l demamling the exerci.'e 
of your best financial ability. Whothei- 
the .State is. oris not liable for that portion 
of the debts of the University cn^aled by i 
Legislative authority, it is a matter for 
your cousider.ation, whether it \.-ould not 
be a measure of sound and honorable poli- 
cv for it to provide for their payment by an 
arrangement with the creditors A.'hich shall 
place the University lands in th.^ hands of 
the St.ite, free from encumbrance. 'J'hese 
lands amount to 46.080 acres, .'.elected iu 
choice localitie.s, and may be presumed to 
be far more valuable than the school land.s, 
about which no choice can be exercised. 
Yet at the average price at which theJalter 
have been sold, tiiey would l>e worth .^281,- 
088, a sura sulficeot not only to pay the 
debt which now hangs like a) iivubus upon 
this noble foundation, but constitute an 
ample fund for the support of the institu- 
tion for years to come. 

Coinciding fully in the opiu ou that by 
the 5th Section of the Enabling Act of 



INDIGENT IN.<SANK. 

It is hanlly creditable to cnir State that 
no .steps have yrt I>een taken towards esta- 
blishing an a.sylum for the indigent Insane, 
aii<l that we are dep»ndent upon the chari- 
ty of a neighboring State for the means of 
providing temporary relief for a limited 
number of these uufortunates. We are 
also warned that the only State which gave 
a favorable response to onr application to 
receive the liisane'of this State, will soon 
have no room in its a.sylam for our use, so 
that unless you make .some provision for 
their relief, this afilicted class of our j)opu- 
lation, demanding your warmest sympathy 
and tenderesl care.'will b- left to sufler on 
mi.serably and hopi.dessly. It is higli timo 
that Minnesota should take some steps dic- 
tati'fl by Christian civilization and human- 
I ity, tow'ards establishing, building up, and 
fo.stering such asylums and charitable in- 
stitutions, as are the i)iide and enduring 
glorv of her sister States of this Union. 

1 ask your favorabh' consideration of 
the recommendation of the Auditor of 
State, that one mill of the tax for school 
{(urposes sliouhl be transfernnl to the gen- 
eral revenue fund for the support of the 
iiLsane, and the blind, and deaf mutes.

frontier counties. A corps of State scouts 
was organized to track these savages totheir 
hiding places, and in order to enlist tho iii- 
haiutants of the menaired district in their 
extirpation, arms were issued to them, autl 
a reward of twenty-iive dollars, afterward-! 
increa.-!ed to $200 was offered for every hos-

The.se measure.s (for <letail.'? of which I

bo uangerous aud fuo! hardy.to lat upon any

The Tliirsday, Fiiday and Siturday 
which closed the last and opened the 
current year will be remembered in the 
meteorological calendar as the most ter- 
rible three d.iys experienced in the Uni- 
ted States for a great many years. 

The mails and telegraph continue to 
accumulate evidence of the immense 
range of the storm, and of the sudden 
.ind" re narkable depression of the tem- 
perature which aecompanied it. At St.

rhc winter cold. It is a constant subject 

.f surprise to strangers that they feel the 

cold so little .It stages of tcinperatiirc.

■ he philosophy of tl-e matter is very 

.imple. Dry air. I'ke a woolen blanket 

)r i coat of Arctic fur.s is a non-coitduo-

ihe dryness of the air, this melaphcT- 

ieal blanket increases in almost exactly 

the same proponion, and holds in and 

stimulates the fires of vital heal wiiliin 

the body. Damp air, on the other hana, 

is a conductor of heat like a wet sheet, 

ird unJer the moist and misty folds oian 

Eastern or Southern atmosphere, the 

heat passes o!F rapidly from the 

surface of the body, producing an instant 

sense ofchiHine-s i;nd discomfort. 

In such an atmosphere the whole body 
rapidly falls to the temperature ol the 
eouducting medium, and in severe "spe :1s" 
of cold, such as have recently visited 'the 
MlJdle and Southern States, numbers 
of people inivitably freeze to death— not 
c: icily because the air is cold, but because 
it is damp. 

Tiie dry air dulls and mufiles the sharp 
e<luc of thV; cold, the moist air sharpens 
'.nd barbs it till it rankles ia the tlesh 
like a Parthian arrow.

mediate points, it sunk to OS degrees be- 
low zero, with a severe gale from the 
west and a much heavier snov/ storm At 
B'.tlialo to 9 degrees below zero, with a 
heavy snow storm from the west ; at Dos- 
ton it was severely cold with a heavy 
snow storm from the west. 

(loing South people were frozen to 
deatli at Cineinn.atl and Indianapolis, the 
thermoaioter falling to 1-2 degrees below 
zero. At St. Louis the thermometer 
went dovvn to 21 and Louisville to 2) 
degrees below zero, while hundreds of 
people were frozen to death. 

At Cairo the mercury fell to IG" and 
at Memphis 10" delow zero, and a num- 
ber of persons were frozen to dt ath. 

Soldiers are reported frozen to death 
as far south as Clia'tanooga. Doubtless 
we shall hear of similar reports from New 
Orleans. 

Below our own latitude it will be ob- 
served t' at, as might have been expected, 
the thermometer did not sink lo nearly 
as low a point as at St. l*aul, in the vi- 
cinity of v.Iiich, at Fort Snelling, the 
spfrit th'.nv.ometer indicated over 40° be- 
low z.-ro on Saturday. January 2d. 

Tiie mer.ury has rarely sunk so low at 
the Fort before, and the sense of cold 
was horribly inttnsificd by the accom- 
panying wind, which was, we think, 
never before known to accompany tlie 
lower extremes of temperature in this 
climate, a marvellous calmness being the 
almost invariable concomitant of severe 

cold. 

Yet thoug'i one of severest extremes of 
cold ever known here was experienced un- 
der extraordinary meteorological condi- 
tions which trebled its intensity to the 
83nse, we desire again to call the atten- 
tion of our readers to a remarkable fact 



fho recent new year storm was a 
maikable exception, but even in this case 
the atmospheric motion was compara- 
tively gentle, while in other places east 
and south of us it developed to the pro- 
l.ortious of a gale. The hi-h winds pre- 
vaii in lower latitudes during the winter 
months, drive in and clinch the barbul 
point of the boreal spear which is already 
sharpened and whetted by the dampness 
o' the air— while here the arrow falls 
harmless from the bow of the ice king, 
upon our still air.

FirstLieut. Samuel O. Trimhlc,'a gaUant and 
('cthful otiii er, was shot dead in the extreme 
front of the fight on the ridge. 

Beloved and respected by his comrades in 
lit'.', his death in the very moment of victory 
cast a cloud over our thanksgiving for the tri- 
umph for which he gave liis life. 

Second Lieut. Thomas G. Quayle fell at the 
licad of his men in the melcc on tlie ridge, se- 
verely woiintcd in tlic right knee. 

Color-Ser,,'cant Holder Jacobus, of company 
E, crossed lances with a rel»cl color-sergeant 
over a Napoleon gun on the ridge, and for a 
moment the two disputed its possession, only 
for a m<-mcnt, however, and the gun with 
it J mate was ours, f^rgeant Jacobus was 
soon aftcrv.ard wounded, and all his guard 
save oncv.as either killed or wounded. 

First Sergeant Azel H. Reed commanded 
his Company (K) during the engagement, be- 
having with marked coolness and courage. 
He was severely wounded near the closcf of 
the fight on the ridge. 

First Scig'taut George A. Shuman, of Com- 
pany I. distinguished himself by gallant con- 
duct during the engagement, especially by 
tal ini,' the colors of the regiment from Corpo- 
ral MiiHcn, who had fallen wounded, and 
keeping them aloft and in the front through 
the hotte-t of the fight. 

Sergeants Talbot and Waterman, of com- 
panv B, were killed on the : iclge and in the 
front. Sergeants Lafayette Hadley, of com- 
pany B, Thomas Harney, of company E, and 
A. B. White, ot company K, are all cntiticd 
to special ni.tice for gallantry, as arc a'so pri- 
vates Cox, Marsh, and MeNceley, of company 
A, and many others, whose gallant deeds, 
though telling in the fight, were not especially 
observed and reported. 

I am. Captain, very respectfully.

kee|"> ill motion, so as to destroy the ene- 
juvs aim, and as we now had plenty of 
st'e:im, were able to move, with great la- 
rilitv. The rebels also fired very rapid- 
ly and with deadly elleet. A shell passed 
through the main topma.st, cutting away 
the slu-o'-ids, and scattering the splinters 
jtU over the decks and engine room. 
Whenever I st«pped up up to the hatch, 
the whiz of thy shells was unusually dis- 
ti.-t, .showing that the enemy were good 
t'liunev.-. Word was now brought down 
Th \t more men were killed, and the c;ir

The floatins indebtedness of the State is 
still Lirec and the annual expenditures ot the 
State Government arc necessarily increasing 
vear afier vcar, while the valuation of tax.'il)le 
■property is materially lower than in former 

No insisnifi'^ant portion of the State ex 

pcnses is cau 

State Scrip, which comprises 

debtedness, and hence no effort should bo 

spared to cancel these liabilities. Measures 

should be adopted t>y the Legislature for the 

attainment of this object, and then with a con- 

tina^.tion of the most rigid economy, in every 

department of the State government, the State 

will in a short time, bo in a condition to 

meet every ol)ligatiou in cash the moment 

it is incurred. 

As one means to this end, I would re^pect- 
fiiiiv recommend that the Intcn^st lax for 
the coming ye.ar be reduced from two mi s, 
as it now is to one mill on the dollar, and the 
dirterence added to the revenue tax, leaving 
the amount of State tix the .same as the past 
vear. This mav be safely done, .is tlic State 
interest fund has now a surplus ot ^sis.sisi, af- 
ter providing fur the interest due in Janury

depends -- 

such a vast territory it may always be ex- , stopped, 
pected, while any southern armies can 
keep the field at all, that reverses in one 
place will be balanced by successes in an- 
other. This is evidently Mr. Lincoln s 
own view of the subject. ^^ hile throw- 
ing into a legal form his offer of peace, 
he expressly savs the North must still 
place Its trust in the sword. 
"Thp war nower is our main reliance, 
ificant portion of the State ex- ^^\ fuA !!^Lv «lnne we can look 
-ed bvthe depreciation of <.ur and to that po'^er alone we can loo 

which comprises the floating in- J for a time to give confidence to the people 

in contented regions that the insurgent 

power will not again overrun them. Un- 
til that confidence is re-established little 
can be done anvwhere for what is called 
reconstruction." The chief care of the 
Government, he repeats, 'must be the 
army." Force is still the arbiter ot af- 
fairs, and till that "anarch old" g'ves a 
more decided superiority t'^ the North, 
all amnesties and proposals of reconstruc- 
tion are likelv to be so much waste paper. 
The te.xt of the ofler is destroyed by the 
Viesident's own comment in the margin. 
The whole tone of the message is war- 
like. It contains an offer of peace, but 
on terms that will not be accepted. What 
are the prospects of any result from the 
proclamation in the very State in which 
the Confederate army has met its great- 
est reverse ? They have been defeated m 
East Tennessee, and in the western por- 
tion of the same State we are told "an

ditional means should be devised to increase 
the Uevenue Tax. , 

As the amcmnt of money to be apportioned 
from the General Fiiml hereafter, will fully 
coual the whole amount derived fi*)m the 
two mill .School Tax, this tax might l)e re- 
duced one half and the ditferencc added to 
the Itevenuc Tax, still l%aviug the receipts ot 
of schools as large as before. ^ , ., . 

I wouhl also call attention to the fact that 
our S per cent State I>oikIs for the i?2V),0l)0 
lorn becomes due in July, 1307, and that no 
provision by the creation of a sinking land or 
otherwise, "has boon made to meet the same. 
This subject should receive the immediate at- 
tention of the Legislature. 

Tin: allotmi;nt aof.xcv. 
The tmsiness of this branch of the Treasury 
Department has been largely increa ed during 
the past vear, the receipts being ever threa 
times as gre.at as those of the year 1S62. Every 
effort on our part has been used by me to ren- 
der the svstcm efticient, showing that with the 
co-operation of the I'. S. Pay Department, it 
is one capable of producing the most benehcial 
results, not only t > the .soldier and his family, 
but also to the State at large. 

By reference to the statement accorapany- 
hi" this Report, a large discrepancy in the re- 
ceFpts from the «!ld regimouts, being caused 
bv ihe face that the rolis of the 2d and 3d reg- 
iments were lost while being transmitted from 
the regiments to headquarters at Louisville, 
and we have been unable to trace them up or 
procure new rolls. > , « 1 

1 have been informed that since tlie /th Oth 
and lOth regiments left tlie State, they have 
made out new rolls, the members very gener- 
a!lv making allotments, which, toge:her with 
those from Hatch's Uatt.dion, and the new 
Cavalry regiment now being raised, will 
greatlv increase the amount of receipts of this 
Uep.irtmen: the coming year. 

In the distribution of this allotment money, 
I have been thrown in contact with a great 
number of soldiers' families, and regret th:it 
I find in tlie majority ot cases, an amount of 
destitution and" sutieiing that should not \vi 
allowed to exist. Daily we are called upon 
to make ad\aiiccs or to render aid wich we 
cannot do, no provision for such cases exist- 

It is due to those who arc enduring all 
the hard.«hii>s and vicissitudes of a soldiers 
life, in striving to vindicate our country's hon- 
or, that their wives and children shold not be 
left to sutler for the want of the necessaries ot 
life, and I hope that our SUte, through lier 
representatives, will follow the noble example 
set by our sister States, by making some pro- 
visioiis for their assistance.

^Veetaawkeu — Anolber 
Iron-Clad. 

Correspondence l'hiladcli>hia Inquirer. 

Morris Isi,ani>, S. C, December 2.3, 
1,%;3. — At the present writing, there are 
no efforts being made to raise the Wee- 
hawken, although the contract has been 
given out to an experienced and respon- 
sible party. Naval ollicers think she 
can be raised without difficulty, but ex- 
press .an opinion that when raised it will 
be loutid that the cause of her founder- 
ing was totally different from the reports 
given out soon after the disaster occur- 
red. That the Monitors are not sea- 
worthy is patent to every man of naval 
experience ; and that they are sadly in- 
ferior, both offensive and defensive, to 
the Ironsides type of war vessel, every- 
body here knows. 

A new iron-clad ra:n — perhaps a third 
larger than the Atlanta— made her ap- 
pearance in Cooper river a few days ago. 
She came down past Charleston with flags 
Hying, rounded Castle Pinckney, fired a 
salute of four guns in broadside, and then 
returned. She made a stately appear- 
ance, had good proportions with sloping 
lines, and was decidedly the most formid- 
able looking craft that the enemy have 
vet exhibited in these accursed waters. 
The query now is, where was she built ? 
Is she a new affair, or one of their old 
rams rebuilt ? If new. she will make the 
fourth iron-clad that floats "the red cross 
dots" for the defense of Charleston. 
Should Admiral Dahlgren remain inactive 
another month, he may be attacked at 
his own anchorage. The Confederate 
navy is positively looking up. 

A large nuber of intercepted rebel let- 
ters have fallen into possession of our 
Post-Commander on Island. A

perusal ol them exhibits the great desti- 
tution and extreme suffering of the people 
in South Carolina and southeastern Geor- 
gia; corroborates also the prevailing feel- 
ing here, and at the North, that the 
Confederacy is nearly used up. One 
of these letters, written at Barn- 
well, expresses •' a hope that this 
terrible and devastating war will soon 
terminate ; but if it does not, we must 
perish from famine or the want of doih- 
ingy Another, written by a merclip.nt 
at Jacksonsboro, Georgia, quotes '*com- 
I mon heavy boots at .$60 to $7o per pair; 
' coarse muslins at 9oc to $1,25 per yard; 
meats generally at i?!l,.'>0 per pound, and 
whiskey at .945 per gallon." It is pre- 
sumed the latter rebellious fluid kills at 
one thousand yards^-even in a foggy 
night. 

From the Beacon House, near Fort 
Strong, I looked through a field-glass 
this morning and distinctly saw a squad 
of rebel soldiers working with spades 
and picks on the southeast angle of Sum- 
ter. They numbered thirteen, and were 
digging with great energy. My impres- 
sion was that they were unearthing case- 
mates, with the intention of constructi.ig 
batteries there, but possibly they were 
digging out the dead who perished in the 
recent explosi n. Charleston journalists 
are dumb on that terrible catastrophe, 
but there is evidence that they lost large 
numbers of soldiers or contrabands in

Tho Thirsday, Friday and Saturday 
which closed the last and opened the 
current year wl!l be reinember^-d in th.- 
nieteoroioj^ieal calendar as th-:; most ter- 
rible tlnvv^ days experienced in the Uni- 
ted States for a groat many years. 

The mails and telegraph continne to 
aCL-imulate evidence of the immense 
range of the storm, and of the sudden 
and" re uarkable depression of the tern 
perature which accompanied it. At St. 
Paul the thermometer sunk on Jan. 1st to 
j5S degrees below zero, with a jrende 
g.'-» lie breeze from the west, while sii^w 
llll to the dipth of about ten 
inches during the storm. Going 
East, at Milwaukee and inter 
mediate points, it sunk to 3S degrees be- 
low zero, v.ith a severe g-le from the 
vest and a much heavier snow storm At 
Buffalo to U degrees below z;ro, with a 
heavy snow storm from the west ; at Bos- 
ton it was severely cold with a heavy 
snow storm from the v.'t st. 

Going .South people were frozen to 
aeaih at Cmcimiati and Indianapolis, the 
thermomoter falling to 12 degrees bJow 
zero. At St. Louis the thermometer 
weat down to 2i and Louibville to 2 - 
degrees below zero, whiL- hundreds of 
people were frozen to death. 

At Cairo the mercury fell to IG" and 
at Memphis 10* delow zero, and a num- 
ber of persons were frozen to diftth. 

Sv^ldiers are reported frozen to death 
as far south a.s Chatanooga. Doubtless 
we shall hear of similar reports from New 

Orloans. 

Below our own lafitiule It will be ob- 
served t! at, as might have been expected, 
ihe therciouieter did not sink to nearly 
as low .1 poif.t as at St. Paul, in the vi- 
cinity of ivhieh, at Fort Saelling, the 
Sj.irit thermo.'UGtfir indicated over JO*' bo- 
low zero on Saturday, .January 2d. 

The mcivury has rarely sunk so low at 
tho Fo':;,^,V-^'.re, and the seme of cold 
was /,oM.awr*ttten?iricd by the aecom- 
j.anying wind, which waa, we think, 
invcr beloye known to aicompany the 
low.T extremes of temperature in this 
climate, a marvellous calmnetis being the 
aimo t invariable concomitant of severe 

cold. 

Yit tiioug'i one of severest extremes of 
cold ever known here was experienced un- 
der extraordinary meteorological condi- 
tions which trebled its intensity to the 
ssnse, wo desire again to call the atten- 
tion of our readers to a remarkable fact 



revealed by comparing the cfF-Cts of this ; 
cold snap h re with its effects in Southern | 
latitudes where the mercury indicated a | 
much less decree of actual cold. Frotu ! 
the sout! crn limit of our State to North- ; 
em Alabama the depression of the ther- 
rnoriioter to points from 10 to 24 degrees 
I elov/ zero, was everywhere a.-'-orapanied 
with numerous instances of porsons/z-ec?- 
Ini; to 'len'.'i. "F.o-:cn to -ieath'' is t!> > 
horrible cry that comes up from St. Louis, 
from Cincinn:»t!, from Cairo, from Mem- 
phis, from Chattanooga. ll'Uidi-ed.s o 
people ; whoever,indeed,was lor.g exposed 
lo t'.;e j)iLiic:3 storm v.liich n^iiered in tho 
Xew Year in tlie iMildle nn>i SontherH 
Stati-5, [iczii to death. 

It will be thought rem-^rkable at Sair.t 
f^oui^ that with tha thermometer 1 1 de- 
i;ree3 and even 2G degrees lower ni this 
State : wit!i a fearfid norther to drive in 
t!ie ra::oi- edge of tlie storm, i.cL a 
single instan-jo has been reported 
of "any o-.e freezing to death, or 
even freezing so bailiy as to require med- 
ical attention. They will not understand 
this remaakable exemption of Minnesota, 
under circu.nstanee? apparently so niMuh 
■■^\or■,^ aggravated, from the <ireadfid ctu"- 
.mlties wliich registered the f^\tal cfiecls 
3f the cold 5pell in lower latitudes. 

The oppoitunity Jsagood one to incul- 
I'ite a liii'u! le.«son in conjjiarative c!i:nat- 
olooy. 'iViee the degree of cold which 
si tuLditers men and animals like a pcsii- 
'ence in more Sourfiem latitudes j>asaes:; 
ii:vmleis over ^yiinnesot:^, for this simple 
n-ftson : The extreme dryness of the air 
ivhich characterizes th'« climate of Minne- 
3,>ta neutralizes the ofiects of cold upon 
animal life. The wonderful dryness of 
our winter and even of our ?um;r.er atmos- 
phere is a climatological fact wh.ose ini'u- 
' lue is <onstantly felf.>n the whole ei-on- 
ouiy of vegetable and .animal life. It is one 
dtiiemain causes of the now universally 
.•onco.ltd heidthfnliu'ss of this di'uate in 
dison^ts of the throat and lmigr.,of its ix-- 
.imptlon from severe frosti — and m 
preventing rust, mildew and blij^ht in our 

crops. 

Put its kindly infi-.'-en. e isncverso pal- 
pably felt as ia nutigating the severity of 
the winter cold. It is a constant subject 
of surprise to strangers that they feel the 
rold so little at stages of temperature, 
when the same exposure in other climi'tes 
would cause insupportable suffering. Yet 
the i)hiiosophy of the matter is very 
.>imple. Dry air, like a woolen blanket 
or i coat of Arctic furs, is a r.on-condnc- 
ior of heat. And as the rnevcary falls, 
the dryness of the air, this metaphor- 
ical blanket increases in almost exactly 
'.he same proportion, and holds ia and 
niiuulati-s the fires of vital heat within 
the body. Damp air, on the other hand, 
is a conductor of he.-'t like a wet sheet, 
and under the moist and misty fohis ofi-.n 
Eastern or Southern atmosphere, the 
heat passes olf rapidly from the 
surface of the body, producing an instant 
sense ofchiUine s f.nl discomfort. 

In such an atmosphere the whole body 
rapidly falls to the temperature ol the 
fonducling medium, and in severe "spe'ls" 
i.f cold, such as have recently visited the 
Mi('dle and Southern States, numbers 
of people inivit.^bly freeze to dealli— not 
c: icily because the air is cold, hut because 
it is damp. 

The dry air dulls and mufTies the sharp 
ecf;e of the cold, the moi>t air sharpens 
and barbs it till it rankles in the ilosb 
like a Parthian arrow. 

Th<=r« is still another can<^c wbich oper- 
ating upon a moist atmosphere gives a 
dreacfid intensity to wiiat would here be 
•onsic-cred a nsoderate degree ofcold, and 
that is ll c wiral. In Mmnesota extremes 
of cold are almost always accompanied 
-.vilh a pfrfect stillnes of the atmo.sphere. 
fho recent new year storm was a re- 
markable exception, but even in this case

To Captain C. S. Vline, the senior of his 
grade in tho rcgniunt, was assigned the com- 
mand of the two companies deployed to cover 
tlse formation and advance of the brigade in

A dispatch just received from C(d.Tlioljurn, 
commanding at Petershurgh. informs inetiiat 
the rebel force threatening tli.t idaec forev- 
eral davs p.ist, has re.reatcd towards the 
•Shenandoah valley. The force is an organ- 
ized one, consisting 'f three brigades, Lee, 
Walker and llosser, all under command of 
Fitz Hugh Lee. Deseitcrs renoit tii it it w;-s 
the intention of Lee to capture the garrison at 
I'etersini g, t ike New Creek and Cumb. riaud, 
destroy cmr stores, break the railroad by burn- 
ing bridges, &c. 

1 am happy to inform you that the great 
r.aid undertaken by Gen. Eariy in retaliation 
fur our late moveinaits in this Department 
has thus tar proved a comidefe failure or ii;.- 
z e. An empty wag:tn train of Col. Thohuin, 
returning from Petersljurg w^lS ca;)tured by a 
portion ot the enemy's force. With this cx- 
cei)tion they have not thus far been able io 
inflict upon" us any injury. 

Maiiv deserters are comingi n and oar cav- 
alry are picking up many suvgglers. The rail 
road is safe an<l trains are running regularij . 
rhe weather is cold and snow is several inches 

deep.

Report of Rev. B. D. Neill. 

Pnn.ADF.Li'iiiA, Dec. 30, 1803. 
To the Governor of Mianesota:

ed Minnesota soldiers in the hospitols of thii 
c'.ty and vicinity. 

A riiference to my last report, published in 
the papers of St. P.uil, and dated October 
16th, will show that then the sum of thirty- 
four dollars and thirty-seven cents re- 
mained in my hands. 

Since that period I have presc nted the fol- 
lowing sujns : Charles Drake, Company A, 
South Street Hospital, $.3; Dana Barton. Com- 
pany G, Chesnut Hill, (additional,) $i : Cfaas. 
Ely, Company K, Broad street, ^-3; Charles 
Stecn", Company A, York, $5, Total $^16. 

The amount left in my hands is therefore 
eighteen dollars and thirty-seven cents, for 
which a check in favor of the State Treasurer 
is enclosed. 

For the information of the donors to the 
fund, .'■.nd for my own protection you will 
confer a favor by publishing this, as all pre- 
vious reports have been, in the Piir.s.'i and

The statement that S. M. Clark the chief .f 
bureau in Treasury Department has hcei) sus- 
pended from duty, is totally witleait f..nnda- 
t:OH. There is authority fur denial, 'iliero 
wiil proliablv be a rigorous examination as to 
the motive of the author ot this report. 

The Democratic and Conservative members 
of Congress met on Saturday even ng iu the 
Capitol with Hon. J. L. Dawson, <f la., /n Ihe 
chair, and unanimously adopted the following 
important resolutiiais, oll'ered by Hon. James 
Brooks, of New York ; 

Wiii.ur.As, Gold or silver is paid to our 
Ministers, Consuls and Commissiincrs rein-c- 
senting the nation at foreign countries, and 
gtdd or silver are received Ironi the people at 
Custom Houses in payment of duties, and 

WH1.ULAS, The peoi Ic are taxed to pay 
capitalists their interest in cp -cie la their m- 
vestments in national dcht, therefore be it 

Rtsohed, That the ollleers, sold.er.s and 
sailors in the army and navy should be paid 
in gold or silver or their cquivakrt;; in 
amount ; and be it also 

Resolved, That the ch.aimian of this meeting 
be instructed to prejiare aiiiendiucuts to the 
armv and navv bill to this eileet. 

The following resoluti >n Irom a committee 
appointed to consult upon the politiiical mat- 
ters likely to comfbeforc Congress was also 

adopted '■ 

Resoteed, That the Prctident's proclam-.dion 
of December S, 1803, is unwise, inC:qK*dient, 
revolutionaiy, and iineonstiiutional, and is 
therefore disapproved of. 

The Herald's Washington dispiteh says 
Generals Meade, Hancock, Meigs and Ingals 
arrived there last evening. 

Eu'.rnordinary developnvnts coucernmg 
the management ofaflairs at the cavalry camp 
at Giesboro implicate parties in whom th;; ut- 
most conlidmce has been l>etore plaecil. It is 
alleged that the recent stampede of horses 
was made by the ofliccrs. 

The late inspectiuu cf hospitals m the At- 
lantic States develope the tact that all arc 
bounteously provided with necesaries and 
luxuries, and inspectors recommend the be- 
nevolent attention of the sanicary commHtce 
to those m the West.

ii-om 11 o'clock on Saturday niudit until 1 
ydock ycsterdav aficrnojii no great change 
was notice. I in his coiiditijii. He remained in 
die mo.rt feeble state, im.ible scarcely to hft 
■lis hand or utter a word louder than a whis- 
per, and th. it wiiii then, most ditiicultv. In 
die foivaviou his atten iants succeeded in 
making him swallov.- a 1 ttlc nourisimient in 
the sliapc ol hviiic souji, ; nd some of his more 
hoiiefnl friends supposed from this fact fliat 
there was a chance tif lis hohiiiig out fo;- a 
few davs I' ngcr. But llie hoie was most de- 
ceptive". About 1 o'c;oc!< yesterday afternoon 
he became unconsei ms, ind lay in that c n- 
dition, with slight inter ..ds of re:ison, until 
half-past seven o'c'.oek ia.-t night, when he 
breathed his la;-t. lie was surrounded at the 
soieiun mouient by Bi-hop M-CloslvCy, of Al-

.-Vljouttwo hours beicvc h:s iloath he was 
.seized w.tli a seiiiS of slight spa.=m or gentle

readiiii.' praveis for his Inppy death, and nil

Though tho questior of who shiH be the 
successor ot the Archhidiop his not yet been 
mooted atuong th.e ctersy, still it will not be 
ppi;.] roprlate to make :' few remarks here on 
this important subjet t. The ordinary method 
in cases of this kiml, is tor .i council of bish- 
ops of tne proviuco to meet, agree upon three 
names, send them to Home, with rccoinmcml- 
uiions and c.xplanaiion; as to the relative Ih- 
ness of each. On thes< reeommcndaiions his 
Hulinc.?s, the I'ope, cli >scs one out of the 
tiiree, and confers u;;oi; him the pallium. Any 
clcrgvman iu the i)r.>v uce, whether a lUshoii 
or liot, mav bj thus .hoscn by the Episco- 
pal Coiincil. Whether tliis course will 
be adopted in the present cise is 
a matter of stune doubt. It appears tiiat 
Bishop MoCl' skcy, Avhcn he was .app(»intcd 
Coadjutor Bishop' of >ew York, was conse- 
crated "witli the rigVit of succession." Since 
then he has accepted t ic Sec of Albany, and 
v.'hether w hen he did S5 he waived his right of 
6,uccee!-ion to the Disc.'S.s (now ,-\rchdioccss) 
of New York is the point which ot-casions 
some donbr. The pro lab.l'ty is that the sul)- 
jeet will have to lie re erred to Rome fa- in- 
structions from tlie Pope, whose decision will 
of course, be ihnl and ali coutroling. Among 
the laity yesterday, tac names of a number 
of ecei>i:)slics were mimlioned in connection 
! with the succession, but wc refrain from giv- 
ing iiublieiry tJ them, for tlierea.=on that no 
weight is to be attaeh.cd to such outside spe,<"-

The amount of .Scrip outstaading i>e- 

ceniber 1, 18*53, was 45,, aO 40 

The balance in the Treasury last year to the 
credit of the State, including interest money, 
was onlv $1,032; this year we have on hand 
§25,382.' Nothwitlistandin?: the ab )ve exhibit 
is gratifving when compared with former 
year.-, it "must be borne in mind, that it is only 
bv comi»arison that it is so. 
'The tloutimr indebtedness of the State is 
still 1 irge and the annual expenditures of the 
State Government nre necessarily increasing 
year af:er year, while the valuation of taxal)Ie 
property is materially lower than in fonner 
years. 

Xo insismificant i>ortion of the Stjite ex- 
penses is eau-ed by the depreciation ofxtur 
State Scrip, which comprises the HoatinR in- 
debtedness, and hence I'o effort should be 
spared to cancel these liabilities. Measures 
should be adopted l>v the Legislature lor the 
attainment of this object, and then with a con- 
tinuation ofthe most rigid economy, in every 
department ofthe State government, the State 
Will, in a !:hort time, be in a condition to 
meet every obligation in cash the moment 
it is incurred. 

As one means to this end, I ^ould respect- 
fully recommend that the Interest Tax for 
tlie coming year be reduced from two mills, 
as it now is, to one mill on the dollar, and the 
ditleronce added to the revenue tax, leaving 
the amount of State t ix the same as the past 
year. This may be safely done, as the State 
interest fund has now a surplus of 1^,981, af- 
ter providing for the interest due in Janury 
and May next. . 

This, in itself, will not be sufficient to fully 
cancel during the coming year, the whole 
amount of the floating indebtedness, and nd- 
ditiunal means should Ix! devised to increase 
the Uevcnue Tax. 

As tlie aiiumnt of money to be apportioned 
fVom the General Fund liereaftsr, willfully 
eiiual the whole amount derived from the 
two mill Schof)! Tax, this t;ix might be re- 
duced one half and the difference added to 
the Kevenue Tax, still leaving the receipts of 
of schools as large as Iwfore. 

I would also call attention to the fact that

"The war power is our main reliance, 
and to that power alone we can look

power will not again overrun them. Un- 
til that confidence is re-established little

fairs, and till that "anarch old" gives a 
more decided superiority t'* the North, 
all amnesties and proposals of reconstrue- 
tion are likely to be so much waste paper. 
The text of the offer is destroyed by the,

act of March Gth, 1863, I have pnid upon the 
dr d't of County Treasurers, the sura of $2,- 
712 43, leaving the balance credited to the 
Kcvenuc Fund and subject to draft on such 
apportionment. 

Independent of the above State Funds, the 
Treasurer has been more the custodian of 
d^rt.dn moneys for special purposes, as fol- 
lows : 

MIN.NESOTA RELIEF FUND; 

Being doniitions by charitable persons in this 
and other States for the benefit of those made 



provision by the creation of a sinkini; fund or 
otherwise, has been mailc to meet the .^^amc. 
This subject should receive the immediate at- 
tention of the Legislature. 

TUE AM.DTMEXT AOENCY. 

The business of this branch of the Treasury 
Department has been largely increa ed during 
the past vcar, the receipts »>eing over thre« 
times as great us those of the year 1862. Every 
etfort on our part has been used by me to ren- 
der the svstcm etlieieut, showing that with the 
co-operation of the U. S. Pay Department, it 
is one capable of producing the most benelicial 
results, not only to the soldier and his family, 
but also to the !;;tate at larire. 

Bv reference to the statement accompany- 
ing this Report, a large discrepancy in the re- 
ceipts from the old regiments, being caused 
bv the fiict that the rolls of the '2d and 3d reg- 
iments were lost while being transmitted from 
the regiments to headquarters at Louisville, 
and wc have been uuable to trace them up or 
procure new rolls. 

I have been informed that since the 7th 9th 
and 10th regimenrs left the .State, they luire 
made out new rolls, the memlicrs very gener- 
ally making allotments, which, togeiher with 
those from Hatch's Batt.dion, and the new 
Cavalry regiment now being raised, will 
greatly increase the amount of receipts of this 
Depaitment the coming year. 

In the distribution of this allotment money, 
I have been thrown in contact with a great 
number of soldiers' families, and regret that 
I hnd in the majority of cases, ;m amount of 
destitution and suttering that should not be 
allowed to cxi.'^t. Daily wc are called upon 
to make ad\ances or to render aiil wich wc 
cannot do, no provision for such cases exist- 
ing. 

It is due to those who arc cndurii\g all 
the iiardships and vicissitudes of a soldiers 
life, in striving to vindicate our countrv 's '(on- 
or, that their wives and children sholU not be 
left to sutfer for the want of the necessaries of 
life, and I hope that our State, through her 
representatives, will follow the noble example 
set by our sister States, by making some pro- 
visions lor their assistance. 

Respectfully submitted, 
CHARLES SCHEFFER, 

State Treasurer.

The lF«eba«vken — Anoflier Rebel 

Xron-Clad. 
Correspondence Philadelphia Inquirer. 

MoKRi.s I.SLAXD, S. C, December 23, 
18G.0. — At the present writing, there are 
no efforts being made to raise the Wee- 
hawken, although the contract has been 
given out to an experienced and respon- 
sible po.rty. Naval oflicers think she 
can be raised without difliculty, but ex- 
press an opinion that when raised it will 
be found that the cause of her founder- 
ing was totally different from the rejiorts 
given out soon after the disaster occur- 
red. That the Monitors are not sea- 
worthy is patent to every man of naval 
experience ; and that they are sadly in- 
ferior, both offensive and defensive, to 
the Ironsides type of war vessel, every- 
body here knows. 

A new iron-clad ram — perhaps a third 
larger than the Atlanta — made her ap- 
pearance in Cooper river a few days ago. 
She came down past Charleston with flags 
flying, rounded Castle Pinckney, tired a 
salute of four guns in broadside, and then 
returned. She made a stately appear- 
ance, had good proportions with sloping 
lines, and was decidedly the most formid- 
able looking craft that the enemy have 
vet exhibited in these accursed waters. 
The query now is, where was she built ? 
Is she a new affair, or one of their old 
rams rebuilt ? If new. she will make the 
fourth iron-clad that floats "the red cross 
dot*" for the defense of Charleston. 
Should Admiral Dahlgren remain inactive 
another monili, he may be attacked at 
his own anchorage. The Confederate 
navy is positively looking up. 

A large nuber of intercepted rebel let- 
ters have fallen into possession of our 
Post Commander on Island. A 



the conditions of the amnesty do not ap- 
ply.

perusal ol them exhibits the great desti- 
tution and extreme suffering ofthe people 
in South Carolina and southeastern Geor- 
gia ; corroborates also the prevailing feel- 
ing here, and at the North, that the 
Coufeileracy is nearly used up. One 
of these letters, written at Barn- 
well, expresses " a hope that this 
terrible and devastating war will soon 
terminate ; but if it does not, we must 
perish from famine or the want of cloth- 
ing.'''' Another, written by a merchant

mon heavy boots at $60 to S7o per pair; 

\ coarse muslins at 95c to $1,25 per yard; 
meats generally at $1,50 per pound, and

sumed the latter rebellious fluid kills at 
one thousand yards — even in a foggy 
night. 

From the Beacon House, near Fort 
Strong, I looked through a field-glass 
this morning and distinctly saw a squad 
of rebel soldiers working with spades 
and picks on the southeast angle of Sum- 
ter. They numbered thirteen, and were 
digging with great energy. My impres- 
sion was that they were unearthing case- 
mates, with the intention of constructing 
batteries there, but possibly they were 
digging out the dead who perished in the 
recent explosi n. Charleston journalists 
are dumb on that terrible catastrophe, 
but there is evidence that they lost large 
numbers of soldiers or contrabands in 
that drsastf T. Its origin is as yet un- 
known to us on this island.

In a few days — or as soon luJlic weather 
will permit — gionnd wi'l Lc bP^ivcn for the 
erect on of a Imilding finer in in architech-

day fined and sent to jail for disorderly eon-

Mi»8 Mary Clare, a half-breed maiden, wai 
nrniigned for stealing sundry stockings,

Eunice Wilson. The dusky-visaged damsel

\Vk are pleased to learn that James J.

caps over the window;*. 

The basement will be u.'icd for buj-incss 
panK)S(.s. The ground tloor (on Third ^tleet) 
will b." divided into two large and elegant 
storo-, runjiing the tn:iie Icn-th of the build- 
ing, lietween these is a hall twelve feet 
wide, with -flairs to the second story, wlii.h 
v.iil be divIdL'd iu-.o sui.s cf rooms for ofllces, 

From here wide and ea>y stairways lead to 
the llJ d and l.-nrih .-torie^-. which are to be 
littcd uii as a Theatre and Music Ilall, capa- 
ble of si^ating with ea^e loCO persons— fully 
twice tho c ipatity «.f IngcrtfoH's Hall. This 
theatre ■:> to bv.- iitted up with every modtin 
im;'!- .vemLUt and convenience as regards 
!i ;hr, arran,:ement, means of exit, vcntila- 
lion, acoustics, besting, cic. The stage, pro- 
Sv:.u;sun, galiciitN civhestra, etc., will all Lc 
iarg; and fniely tinibhed. In short, we will, 
V. hen this ekg.mt buiiuaig is completed, have 
an Opera House worthy of the taste and lib- 
cr.dity of otir i>uMic, as well as an ornament 
t ) tliL" ciiy archileiturally. 

This e;e:Mnt bsildin^' wiil nit cost Ic-s than 
SJ),0)0. It is t > be built by Mr. Chontcau, 
i)f Sr. I.ouis, of whom John S. Prince, Ksq., 
is agent, and will »ic a tine investment in every 
w.iy. Saint Taa' lias k ng needed such a The-_ 
arro and Mu.-iL Hall. Wi; hive here a popu- 
tion of 13,0.)0 pC'-Mle, intelligent and rctined 
a'.: ■ t:ie avLT ;,v, and only dc-iring a propi r 
■i\nril-j for the Draiiiu, to bestow on a worthy 
Theatie a i bcral patronage. All will rejoice 
th.nt we are about to have that desideratum 
-;i;.;)linl in SJ complete a u:.»nner, through 
Mr. i'riuce's foresight and local pride. 

We h.:ve had f.vo theatre buildings already 
i.i t'le eiiy, but tiny have not iJlled the want. 
Van i.iewV, a rude frame, was built in 18.37, 
rnd burned in 1359. The AthinaMim, on Ex- 
c";;.i!!-'c fctivi rt, is a ^o;xl building, but its un- 
fortunate looality will always destroy its suc- 
e S-. The new « Iieatre, however, in its cen- 
tral Io?^ir.'n anJiine frai-:ii will prove popular 
J 1 ever>" way. 

Tlij b'-.ildin.i? was nrospecteJ last season, 
b-:iV'.ing in the fa.lwrc oi'tho lumber import- 
ers to p:f' lire a su^'ply, its erection was de-

TiiC building has been designed .tnd will be 
preeted b/ II. M. Akcroyd, Es i., an aeco.n- 
i^li-thcd-'ind expericuecd architect, a pr.pil, by 
•'ic way, of the famoas Pngiu. of England, 
the greatest ardiitcet of this century. Mr. 
Akeioed has designed and bailt a number of 
t.r.e cdiiiccs in the Uni:cJ States. Among 
iheui we iiJ.\y mention : — 

The Hroat Western window of the Cathe- 
dral of the Imaculate Concepti m, Albany, 
painted by Waiies of New Canlc on Tyne, 
England, at a cost if several thousand dol- 
lars. The unrivalled decoration (iViy- 
cTii-nine) ot Trinity Chapel, 27th street, New 
York. Zion Chr.rch, do, St.Mary'<, Burling-

Chang d by Mr. Prince to a 90-f ot front. New 
plans are in prei)aratIon, v.hich will be ready 
in a few days. We can then give a more mi- 
iMte description of this fine block, which will 

be an c inamcni to the city. 



Lahr'.s Restaurant. — Lahr is keep- 
ing the great headquarters for oysters now. 
He get* them up in the nicest shape, and has 
all the "collaterals," such as royal liquors, 
ale, cigars, etc., of the best quality. Every- 
body who knows what's nice goes to Lahr's, 
J>eeausc they always get it there. Members 
of the Legislature who want oysters should 
call in there, and try Lahr's bivalves. They 
are fine. 



Still Anotkr. — Mr. F. M. Johnson, 
Agent of the Wheeler and Wilson Sewing Ma- 
chine, has just received another lot of them, 
the third one received this winter. The de- 
mand for these superior machines is extraor- 
dinary, while all who purchase them are de- 
liirhted with their work. There are protmbly 
500 of these machines at work in this city and 
vicinity, which is more than all other styles 

put together.

FiRK AT JIastixgs. — We learn from 
t!ie Hon. R. R. Henry, that a frame dwelling 
house on 5th street, Hastings, took fire at 8 
o'clock A. M., yesterday mommg. and was to- 
tally consumed, with most of the contents. It 
was one of the finest dwelling houses in Has- 
tings, and owned by Hillery & Washington. 



Romans, Countrymen, Lknd Me 

Yoin Ears.— If any of the Legislators, 
strangers in town, or others, wish to get sup- 
plied with stationery or anything else in the 
Book-store line, l«t them tab e a small walk 
into the Davenport's, in block beyond the 
Post Ollice. He is at small expense for rent, 
&c.,and can sell better and cheaper than any- 
bo ly else. State scrip taken at par. Go to 
Davenport, 294, Third street. 

. ••• 

The Anoka Star. — Now since we 
hive railroad communication established with 
Anoka, our merchants should be looking up 
tiade in that section. The Anoka Star, pub- 
lished by A. G. Spaulding, will be found a 
good medium through to introduce their busi- 
ness to the public there.

A Mild Spell. — The mercury yester-

a thaw were visible along the edges of the 
sidewalks. Every body who had a sleigh was 
out enjoying the balmy, bright weather.

LETTER FROM 
HITCHCOCK. 



GENERAL 



Co.-irofNiUNG A Felony. — Wc last 
wcel; mentioned that a person who had been 
nrrcij'ed ;or stealing a wa:ch fromaprostitiuc, 
and pu: into jail by two policemen to await 
trial— V. as released Ironi jail by the po'icemcn, 
who st.ited that the complaint had been with- 
drawn ;./ ihe parly V. ho lost the wach, and 
that tho accii^id >.v '!i!d be cliM:iiar ' if l;c 
would enlist in the army — (his Ixjunty to go 
TO the o«n ers ior their ••expenses and fees,") 
an 1 he V!Us o enlisted. 

We sli.ce Kam that the rc'easc was made 
by the o fleers without any authority from any 
responsible souive. '1 in; pi isoucr was never 
brou:.'ht before Squire Gibbs (who issued the 
warrant for his arrest, which warrant is yet in 
thj hands of one of the ollicers,) and the 
wl.olc matter of the release was got up by the 
p liw-emen, Patterson and Pendcrgast, w^ho 
have, or will, pocket tlic gains of the transac;- 
ti'jn. 

Tho matter will not rest here, however. 
Tlio release of the prisoner was no more or 
less than the compjundintj of a felony, 
which is a serious olfence. Mr. Heard, the 
Prostcnling Attorney, has the matter in hand, 
and we will not be siirpiiscd if the two super- 
scrvjcablc policemen get their tingcrs burnt 
by ihfcir lia-tt; to clutch the poor soldiers 
bounty m uiey. Mayor Warren cannot better 
cmpl >y his leisure thun by investigating this 
performance of his two pet policemen.

To the Editor of the New York Times : 

Washington City, 1). C, Wednes- 
day, Dec. .'iO, I8G0. — In my letter to you. 
published in the Times of the 2d inst., I 
recited from a New York paper what 
purported to be an extract from a letter 
dated Port Hudson, November 3, said to 
have been written by a Captain in the 
Seventh regiment, aiidressed to his lather 
which set lorth that Lieut. Geo. B. Cole- 
man, Jr., ol New York, having been 
captured by the rebels, bad been hanged 
within twenty-four hours afterward, to- 
gether with some twenty privates, (col- 
ored,) who were taken with him. 

I stated, at the time, that such publi- 
cations afforded indirect evidence ol the 
manner of disposing of captured members 
of the Corps rf' friqiie determined upon 
by the rebels, and that it was not to be 
expected that we should hear of the de- 
stru Hon of that class of troops by the 
rebels from Confederate authorities. 

I am happy now to state, that 1 have 
received a note dated at labby Prison, 
Richmond, Va., Dec. 24, 18G3, over the 
signa.ure of Lieut. Geo B. Coleman, in 
the following words — doubtless all th.it 
he was permitted to write — to wit : 

•• Having seen a statement in the New 
York Times that I have been executed, 
I deem it my duty to inform you, that I 
am an occupant of this prison, and am 
receiving treatment in common with oth- 
er prisoners here." 

This is the whole of the note ; and 
while it happily furnishes the most accept- 
able evidence that Lieut. Coleman was 
not murdered, as reported by the writer 
from Port Hudson, the circumstances un- 
der which it was written — in the Libby 
Prison under the surveillance of rebel 
offic rs — and its entire silence as to the 
fate of the twenty colored privates who 
Were taken prisoners with him, makes the 
inference unavoidable, that the privates 
were murdered as stated in the letter from 
Port Hudson. 

The rebel authorities in Richmond were 
no doubt anxious to show that Lieutenant 
Coleman himself had not been murdered, 
and therefore permitted him to contradict 
the report concerning himself; but they 
would not permit him to say a word as 
to the disposition made of the privates 
who were captured with him, whose fate 
was reported in the very same letter, 
published in the 'limes, where Lieut. 
Coleman saw the account of his own des- 
truction. 

I regard this letter from Lieut. Cole- 
man as proof that the Port Hudson 4et- 
ter is true in precisely that portion of it, 
about which Lieut. Coleman maintains a 
deathlike silence. 

i stated in my letter of the 2d inst., 
speakii^ of Mr. Ould, the rebel agent of 
exchange, that "he might say, and with 
verbal truth, speaking individually, that 
he would deliver them (prisoners for ex- 
change) under certain conditions, all 
prisoners [of ours] m his hands, without 
intending to include this class of [color- 
ed] troops ; because, by the action of the 
Confederate authorities, not a single 
man, officer, or soldier, belonging to the 
Corps (TAfrique has been or will be per- 
mitted to come into our hands Ihey 
have, on the contrary, when captured, 
been either murdered, cast into prison, 
or sold into slavery. They are not rec- 
ognized in tho South as soldiers." 

That I was in' the main justiticd in us- 
ing the above language, has been since 
sufficiently evince<l by the shocking and 
unblushing statement of the Richmond 
Enquirer of the 17th inst., avowing, al- 
most in direct terms, that the confeder- 
ate trowps have been instructed how to 
dispose of colored troops of the Federal 
army, who may fall into their hands — for 
this is the language of the editor : 

**The Yankees are not going to send 
their negro troops into the field — they 
know as well as wc do that no reliance 
can be placed upon them ; but as depot 
guards, prison guards &c., they will re- 
lieve their white troops. This is the use 
that wiU be uutde ot them. Should ther 



General Rosecrans' report makes plain 
several things which have been in the log, 
notwithstanding a good deal of eiultavor 
to clear them up — and some to keep tLeni 
in the mist : 

1. He maneuvred Bragg out of Chat- 
tanooga, but was obliged to fight him bie- 
fore getting a secure possession of it 
himself — and thus the stretching of his 
line, so much complained of, was a pai t 
of the strategy which accomplished thij 
mam purpose. 

2. His own army was quite too sma'l 
for the work he had in hand ; being large- 
ly outnumbered by the infantry lorcc of 
the enemy. Hence much more depcndci.' 
upon active and correct handling of his 
men, than if his forces had been sufficient. 
It is plain, too, that while his dispositions 
were made to his mind for the lirst day 
of the light, and so succeeded, that on 
the second day there was something of 
blundering, by somebody; and tiat to 
this the enemy owed all the advantage 
they gained. As to the party upon whom 
the responsibility rests, it is a rjuestion 
which cannot now be denied. It wf.niid 
not be strange if it Iwis to be distriburcd 
somewhat ; nor that it should prove to be 
due to the extreme tenison ot iIr- brain 
and muscle to which all [>artics had bcLii 
so long ^objected. IVien bodily over- 
worked cannot always be themselves. 
The country too was rough, broker., and 
unexplored. 

3. His own losses Gen. Rosfccans 
puts definitely down as 36 pieces of ar- 
tillery, 20 eassions and 8,000 stands «»f 
small arms. Our loss in prisoners ex- 
ceeded that of the enemy o.-WO ; of whom 
2,500 were wounded. As vrv. took 
2,0(X) prisoners, we lost of conrse7,uOOU. 

4. There was no general deft at of 
the army on either dayT One divi^iion, 
a part of two brigades, and a regiment 
were routed, and no more. Ali the rest 
of the army was in position on thi' second 
night. Gen. Rosecrans attributes the 
loss of so much artillery to the firolca 
nature of the ground, which made i* im- 
possible to get it otF under the presenjo 
of superior forces. 

5. His relinquishment of tho ground, 
after the second day, was partly thf re- 
sult of necessity and partly strategical. 
His road to Chattanooga had been secur- 
ed the first day of the hght, and had nev- 
er been lost. The fight was for the j)os- 
session of this road. He could ])robal>ly 
have held his position where it was t j<; 
second day's battle. But as his army 
had not been at any time sufficient, .ind 
had been weakened by the route of otk'. 
division, and no supports were nvAV ; and 
as Chattanooga was the real object in 
view, he deemed it prudent to withdraw 
into it, and to relinquish the advantages 
of possessing the battle field. 

That the enemy did not really gain the 
advantages of which they have boasted 
is proved by events subseipiont to llic 
battle.

is almost fabulous. For instance— ^"ITo t > 
$250 for a pair of boots that cost, before tho 
war, $10. Common brogans sell for $3.5 to
